Chain Roller Device for Cleaning When Wheel Removed

Postby 4xsama » Sun May 12, 2013 8:20 pm

Hi,

Anyone seen the small roller device used when the wheel is removed so you can clean the chain and roll it over the chain rings without knocking about the chain stays. The little jigger is inserted into the chain side dropout with chain looped over.

Sure this has been asked before (and I did a search) but for the sake of the slow please advise.

Cheers

Instant chain keeper! Keeps the RD tensioned while transporting and washing with the rear wheel off. No more chain slapping around and leaving greasy marks. :D

That'd be it Bruce. One of those wonderful jiggers that make you facepalm that you didn't think of it yourself :oops:
Mine was built the next day and sadly, is a nasty greasy grey colour. 17/10.

I use a B1.

Totally overkill, but I love well engineered products.

Cheers one and all.

I got shafted by Bunnings. Cost me $5.35 but works like a charm.

That Wearebutter device is sexy.
