...I've been trying to figure out how this crank set acts as a chain guard. It can prevent the chain from dropping inside between the gear and the crank set?
well that one has double sided chainguard both inside/outside. The original one only had one on outside....I've been trying to figure out how this crank set acts as a chain guard. It can prevent the chain from dropping inside between the gear and the crank set?
so what you're saying is the chain can fall both sides??Ah, I see! My chain drops in between the chain ring and the chain guard...
It doesn't get jammed, but yeah it can fall in that small space. If I downshift and keep pedaling it will pop back on the ring though. Thinking about it more it's not really a chain guard since it lets the chain fall off. It's more of a chain ring guard so you don't get your pants greasy.so what you're saying is the chain can fall both sides??
if it falls inside, it just falls... and if it falls outside, it gets jammed up in between chain ring and chain guard??
I didn't think I had a space for double sided chain guard too, I have posted here on EBR when I ordered it on AliExpress that I was taking my chances.I inspected further and I don't think my CCS can fit a double guard anyways. They chain stay is just too close (pics attached). However there looks to be enough room to fit a double sided change guide so I bought one on Amazon and will let you know the results. I also found the Deckas 130BCD on Aliexpress for $20 so I ordered that but won't be here in a long time.
Just in case I bought a new chain too. Mine has well over 2k miles and not sure how long these last on E-bikes.
ok I'm a little confused here.The chain stay is what you are calling the Swing arm. What year is your bike? I got my CCS early 2018 and my chain ring is almost touching the chain stay. We might have different parts.
Okay thank you for the clarification.Sorry for confusion. My first pic was to show there might be enough room for a double sided chain guide / catch to fit between ring and guard. Second pic shows that the ring is pretty close to the stay already.
