Off-Road Chain Stay:

During 2008 I did a lot of mountain biking and my bike started having problems on fast downhills. The chain had too much slack even with only one main front gear.

The design allows the rider to see the inner working of his chain while having an extremely strong casing protecting the Chainring. Fasteners are highlighted as visual features due to the transparent polycarbonate used for the 2 plates.

The transparent plates  allow the rider to monitior his/her chain at any time for obstructions or link damage.

Clamping the unit to the frame is made easy with the clamps joined by two M5 bolts. The first unit was built and fitted in 2008 to a GIANT STP hardtail bike

The Off-Road Chain Stay was designed while working as a Freelance Industrial Designer in South Africa.
