Rated 4 out of 5 by tworldsmine Great chain tensioner
Great little thing to keep your chain at tension at all times. It does NOT replace the chain guide. Nor the clutch mech. It keeps your chain on your rings.
Simplicity of design is amazing. As well as the quality of materials. The occasional mounting plate chain rub occurs that causes the rub marks in time- they do not cause any performance issues- it is simply an aesthetics drawback. The wide variety of colours is great too. All the possible mounting types and options are covered too (etype, bb, iscg old, iscg5, etc.) making it an universal tool to keep your chain where it belongs...

Replaced the broken Gamut P30 on my Stumpjumper Evo for a third of the price. Does the job as good as the previous one, probably slightly heavier but almost impossible to notice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Simple and effective.... Need more?
Always hated hearing my chain and derailuer slapping about when riding fast over the rough stuff. Got this stinger (and bb tool) and had it fitted in 15mins. As an engineer I always like simple solutions to problems , they are low cost, work , maintain easily and last ! This fits that bill. A doddle to fit and set up , tightened plate roughly in 7-8 o'clock position as suggested in online manual and moved roller up to meet bashring. Shifts flawlessly , quicker and snappier, less noise from chain only slight rumble from links passing over roller. Got a 2x9 set up and it switches between rings perfectly. Out on the trail and its quiet and secure over the bumps and jumps , best £16 (sale price) I've ever spent on my bike , very pleased and great price service from CRC !

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good value and does the trick
Bought this in ISCG 05 mount variety for my 2008 Zesty. Not too heavy, easy to fit (if you have a crank bolt tool) and has eliminated the issue of my chain frequently coming off the chainrings.
I didn't give it five stars as the wheel could be smoother running and the chain jumps up onto the wheel's rim when I'm on granny ring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Best add on yet :-)
Fitted this to a Specialized enduro 2007, have removed the top ring so just running the middle and granny. I have had the chain come off on many occasions and it's ended up between the frame and granny ring often damaging the chain and frame. Simple to fit and having tested this on some local trails, it has made a big difference no chain wip almost silent running on fast and bumpy braking section it felt positive no loss of confidence when appliying the power Excellent product. Have not got a device on the top section of the chain, it's not likely I will need one as this has solved my proplems.
