I’d say I’ve been combing our local bike shops and the internet on and off for over a year. My quest? To find a chainguard for my 27 speed bicycle. The dude at Penny Farthing told me it couldn’t be done. The internet message boards showed that others were out there looking. It seemed that this Hebie gadget was close. But not quite close enough. I wanted the real thing…….
I wanted to be able to cycle up hills and not get oil on my jeans!
So here it is……
I have no idea where the manufacturers are, but I found it available online from Rose Versand bike shop in Germany. Apparently you have to take off the bottom bracket….. but I wasn’t doing that myself. I got the ever helpful Juan Carlos from Mamachari to fit it for me.
I’d say the look is more function than form, and I’d have liked to get a nice chrome or aluminium one to fit the overall retro look of my bike. But still, I’m not complaining, my year long global quest is over. I can now ride this bike in my normal clothes.
