MTB Chain Protector Review

welcome to the channel I was going to go
biking today but it’s just so miserable
I decided to do a how-to tutorial so
today what we’re going to be looking at
is the chainstay protector the trek that
come with one it wasn’t the best so what
I decided to do at the time of purchase
is used an old inner tube and wrap that
around and then that way offer full
protection but I didn’t take into
account it’s the size of my feet and at
UK size 13
they’ve been scraping on the frame for a
little while there and you can see that
it’s actually taking that paint off so I
don’t get Precious about it it happens
I’ve got lots of other little dings and
looks and crannies that have happened
with the bike but I don’t want it to get
any worse than that and just continually
rub but I’m gonna cause damage to the
framework so it’s time to get it changed
now before I start with any of the
actual how to do this and it really is
simple but I just want to show you
especially while I’m doing it that’s the
damage that I’ve caused with my feet so
it’s something to be wary off and it can
happen on absolutely any bike it just
happens to be mine because of my join
negress feet so let’s get this patched
up and saw it anybody can do this it’s
so easy so just get your tube I’ve
already cut it there what I’d recommend
is that you cut it longer than you think
you may need because as you start to
wrap it round it does very quickly
disappear so I’m gonna cut it there
alright so I’ve got my long piece there
then what I’m gonna do is just use the
lines are already on the tube and start
to cut out so you can see the lines go
down there and that will not differ from
one tube to the next so do it as neat as
you can so I’ve cut the entire limp as
you can see there for the piece that I
cut but you don’t wanna start wrapping
this big bit of kit round so select one
of those other lines and you can see
they’re on there but you want it to be
what is probably going to be just over
an inch in thickness so I’ll come back
when that bits cut so now it’s been cut
and it’s nice and neat and runs that
entire length of what I cut earlier so
let’s get it attached to the bike now
just to give you an idea of the damage
it has caused so G look here that’s my
foot that’s done that so I just have to
suck that and that just is what it is
but this here initially when you
consider that Trek has installed already
their own version of
the chain protector I noticed quote on
that the chain started to chip all the
paint work here and this started to come
away as well which I covered in my
actual bike review so I put that on and
it is absolutely fine but just over time
this has happened so let’s get it
repaired it’s no biggie
it’s a modern bike don’t be too precious
about them they’re gonna get marked
let’s get it sorted though so it’s time
to now stick it on I’m gonna start from
where the damages occurred I don’t want
to go right up here because that will
start to thicken up there and you know
might cause a problem with the cassette
and chain later on so I like to start at
the back so that it’s all hidden away
and what I mean by that is it’s not sort
of dangling loosely and looking a bit
tightly on the front so if you pull it
nice and tight once you’ve got it lined
up and then put it around the back don’t
you start it off it’s nice and easy but
you do want to get it right at the
beginning best advice for this is to
make sure you pull it as much of the
elastic part of the inner tube as you
can because you do want it to reach the
other end
otherwise you’ll be unraveling it and
doing it all again the good thing is you
have the lines already on the inner tube
so you can just follow those like a
badminton racquet a squash racquet sort
of thing
on the hand or it’s kind of what it ends
up looking like and it ensures that you
have it as neat as you can possibly get
you may have some writing on there
depending what tubes you have you know
I’ve got a little bit there I’m really
not bothered about any of that as long
as it protects the bike I’m happy
so it starts to widen up at the end yeah
but as long as I can get that sort of
section covered so I’m just having to
pull a little bit more out of that to
get to the end all right so I’m just
gonna neat in that up slightly alright
and you can see that will tuck quite
nicely underneath this is where having
someone hold it would be handy but all
I’m gonna do is put my cable tie in
place I like to have the cable ties this
end just purely because it’s not going
to get caught up and a cassette or any
of the working parts down there there’s
less risk of anything happen in this end
just one hand here alright and I always
have at the bottom hidden away where
possible so it just looks as neat as it
can and then once you’ve got one in
place it’s pretty safe to say that you
can let go of that then all you need to
do just marry it up like you did with
the other one and I always put two down
this end
let’s make sure what’s the right way and
then tighten them up as well and that
will just secure it really nicely in
place you’re not gonna catch that on
your foot or anything like that and you
can just tuck it behind if you need to
so it’s out the way a bit more use your
scissors good thing about cable ties you
can cut right up to the top and that is
it done you can if you want to stick one
up this end I wouldn’t say you need to
I’ve never done it before just the two
down the bottom there because it’s very
tightly packed where you’ve wrapped it
round but just compare that to what it
looked like a second ago look at it now
and that will last a long time and far
longer than any of the other ones I’ve
ever put on that cost a hell of a lot
more money so if you’ve got an inner
tube lying around this will do the job
nice and easy
it still blends in quite well I’m black
generally goes of any by color so it’s a
nice easy fix
a low-cost

A bicycle chain guard can make the difference between a good riding experience and a bad one. For the most part, there are four things that you need to know before buying a protective product. They are as follows: where, what, when and how much. If you buy the wrong product or leave out any one of these items, you will likely wind up having your bike falling apart or worse.

A good place to start is with your frame, especially if you own a carbon fiber bike. A carbon-fiber frame is a light and strong construction that is very resistant to shock and impact. You might not think it, but a carbon fiber frame is better than the equivalent aluminum frame when it comes to taking care of the stress on your bike’s chain. The same holds true for alloy frames and other frames made of heavy-duty steel.

For this reason, a protective device should be mounted on the back side of the seat tube, just below the seat tube. It can be a simple plastic guard, a plastic cover, or a metal or glass material cover. There are many products available today that do a fine job of keeping your chain from moving around on the saddle while you ride. Some manufacturers even offer protection that will cover the entire bike for up to eight hours.

Safety is another issue that is often overlooked when choosing a protective product. When you buy a bicycle chain guard, be sure to get one that is designed to protect both your chain and the frame. If you live in an area where the temperature can get extremely cold, look for models that are waterproof or that will stop rain from dripping into your handlebars. If you live in a place where snow falls heavily, look for models that can keep your chain from chipping. If you live in an area that sees all kinds of rain, look for models that can keep water from seeping into your front wheel, which can cause serious damage. Look for models that will protect both your front wheel and your frame and your other components.

Choosing the right bicycle chain guard is important, as they will help keep you and your bike safe. The first thing you want to consider is where to buy a protective device. If you can’t afford the best or need to go out and get the cheapest option available, make sure you check out a few different manufacturers and read some of the reviews online to see which ones people like the most.

A protective device will protect your investment and make your biking experience a pleasant one. Take the time to do your homework, so you won’t end up with a product that does not live up to its promise. The process of purchasing a protective device is a simple one, but it will pay off if you take the time to consider the type of protection you need.
