Nashbar Chain Keeper
How do you keep the chain out of the way when you pop off the wheels for cleaning (or transportation) purposes? This handy dandy wonder, the Nashbar Chain Keeper, is the simple solution to keeping the chain tensioned and out of contact with the frame in the absence of a rear wheel. Via the quick release lever, simply attach the chain keeper to the right rear dropout and you'll be free to rotate the chain backwards and forwards to your heart's content as you make your drivetrain grime-free. Every home mechanic should have this nifty device in their toolbox!
  • Takes the place of the rear wheel to keep chain tensioned for cleaning or travel
  • Allows forward or backward rotation of drivetrain to facilitate chain cleaning
  • Easy attachment to right rear dropout via quick release
  • Weight: 59 grams

        Comments about Nashbar Chain Keeper:

        This keeper is comparable to Pedro's keeper (but without the tail taper, actually making it easier to use, since there's no wrong side) and Park Tool's Dummy Hub in virtually all aspects but price.

        One hand operation, this tool will keep chain tension for storage, transport or, my favorite, chain cleaning. Pop it on and rotating the chain becomes a way simpler operation. You can spin in either direction while wiping down the chain or running it through a cleaner without binding or flinging dried mud into every corner of the room.

        The fact that it's nearly identical to the Park version at less than half the price is incentive enough to give it a shot. The fact that it works every bit as well at the Park or Pedro's version seals the deal.

          Great little gadget to keep the chain in place when doing maintenance with the back wheel out.

            Comments about Nashbar Chain Keeper:

            bought as a chain keeper while doing rear wheel (out of frame)work....keeps the chain stay clean and protects it from chipping.....I always remove a chain to service it (clean) so I don't use it for that, BUT, it would be useful for cleaning to those less fussy than myself....especially combined with one of those chain cleaning rigs....made with adequate quality parts so I have no idea how well it will stand up to solvents...
