It mounts to the seat tube (fits 34.9 and 31.8 tubes with shims included), so is compatible with pressfit BBs, and is manufactured from aluminium alloy with a composite reinforced guide.

    I was trying to find a chain guide to fit 48.5mm to 49mm chain lines for decent 11s on 26 inch bikes. This one is brilliant and totally adjustable to any chain line or chain ring size. A little difficult to fit on an Orange Five and Alpine 160 but once on and setup it works really well. It's a keeper on both my bikes.

    Well... opinion is properly divided on this little baby. I recently fitted one to my AM bike. I've since hammered down numerous black DH runs (including an uplift day)without a single hitch. As others have done, I removed the face plate, countersinked (is that a word?) a hole for the bolt head and fitted it behind my existing bash guard. I also dabbed some locktite on the bolt thread before cranki

    As much as like Superstar and the value they offer, this is just sub standard. Like everyone else, the unit just doesnt stay tight and the guide comes loose and either drags on the chain or the chain comes off. I even put one on my girlfriends single ring road bike and it even failed on that. In summary - utter rubbish.

    All I can say is that its a cheapish short term fix. It works well until you catch it with a foot stroke or bash it a bit and then no matter how tight the bolts are it will move and fail to hold you chain on. On the plus side if you are looking for a super light chain guide and can put up with the occasional re adjustments when hit then this is for you. However I like a fit and forget chain guide
