Something as insignificantly small and light as this device can have a major mechanical (and psychological) effect on preservation of your expense frame. Even when your drive-train is properly adjusted, there exists the possibility of chain drop in a large-to-small chain ring shift. This little piece of machine alloy offers a mechanical restriction from such an episode. To paraphrase our old friend Murphy, 'if something can go wrong, it will . . . and at the worst possible moment.' This is cheap insurance.
The Token Drop Catcher comes with 2 mounting bolts, one alloy, the other steel weighing 6 and 10 grams respectively (measured on my scale and with the provided star washer.) There are no instructions for mounting, but it's not rocket science. Remove the FD bolt, choose and install its replacement, set the Token clearance about 1-1.5mm from the small ring mounting bolt, tighten, check shifting performance, and off you go. Bottom line, at up to 1/3 the cost of other manufacturer's similar product, you can't go wrong.
Does what it vows. Excellent value compared to other brands' alternatives. An essential accessory especially when using relatively small inner ring.Report this review
