Dropping your chain on your cross bike is the problem and the Cross Chain Catcher is the solution. This XL version of K-Edge's Cross Chain Catcher is identical in every way to the standard non-XL version, except the clamp is raised. This allows for more clearance as the guide sits underneath or below the clamp. It was designed this way for frames that are ovalized, have a non-round shape or are simply too busy or cluttered at the front derailleur area where the standard clamp normally attaches to the frame. It is one of the best chain catcher designs on the market for your cross bike and we sell tons of them.
The two piece clamp is all CNC'd 6061-T6 alloy that is machined to hyper-tight tolerances, so open and closing action is smooth and flawless. These tight tolerances also means it will fit perfectly onto your frame's seatube. The actual chain catcher or guide is attached to the clamp via a small machine screw through a slotted hole. The slot allows you to fine tune the distance between the guide and your chain/chainring. Like the clamp, the entire guide is CNC'd aluminum. We stock these for both single chaining and double chain ring set-ups with each coming in 31.8mm and 34.9mm fitments. Make sure to choose the proper set up for your chainring set-up and frame fitment.
