Dog Fang Chain Deflector and Frame Protector

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Some reviews are simple…this is one of them.  Shifting the chain using the front derailleur is difficult.  You must have the perfect balance between cadence and pressure…as in a high cadence with gentle pressure.  Your derailleur must also be adjusted perfectly to allow for maximum swing and range for your gears.  Often, this adjustment falls out of perfection because of road vibration, etc.  So, dropping your chain either inboard or outboard is always a concern.  Well friends, you now have protection from the inboard drop with a chain deflector, or dog fang as the slang goes.  It keeps your chain from shifting past your granny and onto your bottom bracket shell.  Its $25 installed.
