Might a plastic disk not help at all?I've seen that happen to 3 riders... It can be very costly!
A plastic disc isn't going to help prevent that, so set your rear mech endstops properly.
I can't help but feel your answer is particularly rude.Their purpose in life it to prevent the chain going into the spokes due you folk that don’t have a clue on how to set up the stops on the rear derailleur.
I’ve taken them off all my bikes and never had an issue.
I suppose you were born with the knowledge to repair your bike?you folk that don’t have a clue on how to set up the stops on the rear derailleur
I suppose it depends on how big the protective disk(disc?) is and where the mech makes contact. In all 3 cases I witnessed, the end of the derailleur contacted the spokes in the position 'B' in the example picture below. A plastic plate extending only as far as 'A' wouldn't have helped.Might a plastic disk not help at all?
Or at least, with the noise, tell you pronto that something is wrong before it gets worse?
advice: If anyone's bike ever falls over on the mech side, check things before riding - I once stopped spoke wheel damage on another bike by doing this.
I over-adjust it until I can't select that gear then back it off just enough to allow me to.Ok so I understand indexing and the concept of the limiting screws. The gears are nicely indexed so stop properly at the largest cog. How do I know where the limiting screw stops it at as when in first gear I can’t change to below that to know the limiting screw kicks in?
