Where To Get Spoke Protectors

Postby foremannz on Mon 27/May/13 10:03pm

I've put a 12-26T on my urban bike from a 34T, and the spoke protector is not suitable - where can I get one for a 26T? I know some people will say you don't need them, but I like the added security knowing that I won't jam the derailleur into the spokes ...

If tuned properly spoke protectors are totally redundant IMO. However I understand the anxiety. why not just use the one already there?

The one on it atm is tapered for the 34T cassette, but when I run the 26T cassette, the chain rests on the spoke protector when in low gear and drags under freewheeling

Why not just have the top and bottom stops set correctly? No need for a spoke protector then

Yeah, for now I've taken the spoke protector off and checked the stops

I clicked on this thread because I had no idea what a spoke protector even was.
Shouldn't they be called dérailleur protectors, but are still equally redundant?

No, because they protect the spokes.
