This was the first bike related product that K-Edge produced and as such, it was aptly named the 001. Unchanged to this day, this simple yet effective product has saved scores of carbon frames by keeping the chain where it belongs, on your chainring.
The mounting process is straight forward. You remove your front derailleur's mounting bolt and place the K-Edge Chain Catcher and washer flush to the braze-on mount, then insert the longer supplied bolt through the catcher, washer, braze-on mount and into the derailleur and fasten down the bolt. You adjust the angle of the chain catcher, then snug down the bolt. It's a simple mounting procedure that only takes a minute or two of your time. Like other K-Edge products, the Chain Catcher is completely machined from a solid chunk of 6061-T6 alloy. It is then polished and anodized to complete the job. This process ensures it will take just about any amount of abuse you throw its way.
Great idea to save your frame. Purchased one for my bike with SRAM components. Liked it so much that I purchased one for a friend. Easy to install and it does work! My only disappointment is that they do not make these for Shimano/ SRAM clamp-on front derailleurs.
Pros: Works great; easy installation and light
Cons: Not made for clamp-on front derailleurs
