If you are thinking this Feedback Sports Chain Keeper looks familiar, you are correct. Feedback now owns the rights to Butter's awesome chain keeper design, and both Feedback and Butter are producing their own versions. The anodized red Feedback Sports model stands out on its own, and works with both quick release and 12mm thru-axle dropouts. The design features an expanding end design for 12mm thru-axles that imitates many expansion plugs usef for carbon fiber steerer tubes. The standard QR fitment has its own end cap that slots into the drop out to prevent spin. Both are reliable and easy to use with the main aluminum cylinder providing the dial tension you need to secure the keeper in the dropout .

The aluminum work is all CNC machined for a striking effect and wholly practical application. In-cuts provide grip for handling and using, and add to the overall aesthetic. A Delrin wheel spins freely and becomes the chain guide when you mount the keeper into the drop out. To use, you simply set-up the Chain Keeper for the dropout type you have (QR or 12mm. Now remove your rear wheel. From inside the rear triangle feed the keeper under the chain and set the chain in the Delrin roller. Now position the end into the drop out, tighten by hand. Your chain is now supported, holding the rear derailleur in tension. This makes it easier to clean your chain, and is also quite helpful when transporting your bike without wheels. Here at Excel Sports, we actually really appreciate chain keepers and have been a Butter dealer since release. We warmly welcome this Feedback Sports Chain Keeper into the shop as well.

Hard to believe but the bolt supplied with the chain keeper is still too short. I had to replace the bolt with a longer one. Once the bolt is replaced the chain keeper works well.

Says fits a 31.8 seat tube but it is impossible to attach with the included screw. Like the other reviewer I had to take an extra M5 screw I had from my cleats. Finally got it on, but what a pain! There have to be other chain keepers that are easier to put on.

I bought this Chain Keeper for an 㤎 Redline Conquest Pro frame that I had picked up recently. The thing claims to be designed for a 31.8mm frame, but when I went to put it on, the M5 bolt that was included was too short to get far enough into the nut to stay! Simple enough to fix; I went down to the old local hardware store and picked up a 16mm M5 cap screw for about a quarter -- but I really shouldn’t have had to. Apart from that, this thing works exactly like I need it to work, and the plastic design means that it won’t scratch the frame.
