Rohloff Chain Guide XC and DH (8290, 8291)


XC version mounts to seat tube and keeps chain from falling off front sprocket. Includes shims for mounting for 28.6, 31.8, and 34.8mm seatposts. Full cage captures chain as with a front derailleur. Recommended when using the SPEEDHUB 500/14 with a full suspension frame.

DH version mounts to SPEEDHUB 500/14 hubshell and keeps sprocket from jumping off the rear sprocket onto the hubshell. Rear sprocket must be removed to install to install DH chain guide, so Rohloff sprocket removal tool is required to install this guide. Plastic spacer included to position guide proper distance from rear sprocket. Recommended for use with full suspension bikes in extremely rough conditions.

* Note: DH version connects to hubhsell with 3 pointed-tip set screws and will leave 3 small marks on hubshell that will be visible if guide is later removed. No damage is done to the hubshell; it is merely a cosmetic issue.
