How To Install A Chain Catcher

Published on March 2nd 2015


A chain catcher will stop your chain from slipping off your small chainring when you change gear. Here's how to install one. Follow GCN on YouTube: The first thing to mention is that a chain catcher can only be installed on bikes with a braze-on front derailleur. If you do have a band-on front mech you will have to get an adapter which effectively turns it into a braze-on. The actual process of installing is fairly simple - the chain catcher attaches to where the front mech and the braze-on bracket meet. Make sure that the chain catcher is as close as possible to the chain without touching it when your bike is in it's smallest gear. Once it's located, simply make sure your gears still shift OK and you're good to go! Pitch & Scratch - Breakers Delight: Buy GCN Cycling Kit! Click here: Get GCN T-Shirts and hoodies:
