    Lightweight and very well made, this chain keeper does what it's name implies. It keeps your chain on.

    I've never had an issue in multiple seasons of cyclocross (check out the pic -- works flawlessly in mud!).

    Setup can be tricky and may require multiple attempts to prevent chain rub in the big / small cogs.

    I trust Paul Components, so when I needed a chain guide, I had no qualms about checking out the Paul Chain Keeper. Quality component and good price. However, the chain guide is best for narrow chains. The product description clearly states as much, but I thought my chain would be fine. It was not. Still a quality component, just wasn't the right fit for me. Considering the prices of other options out there, I wouldn't hesitate to check it out if you have a narrow chain.

            My Catrike would regularly have it's very long chain bounced off the single chainring. The "Chain Keeper" has elegantly fixed the problem. Not cheap, but well made. I'd buy it again.

              Comments about Paul Components Chain Keeper:

              This product is well made, only works with narrow 8, 9, 10 speed chains, and I don't need it. I run a 1x10 setup on a hard tail and thought this would be needed. My Wolf Tooth Components chain ring combined with my XT clutch derailleur handles the job of keeping the chain put without this piece of added kit. I am moving this to my cross bike because I don't have a clutch derailleur on that bike and this thing is insurance against dropped chains.
              Setup requires you to be precise and ensure you check the extremes of your driveline to set up the best compromise for your cassette.
              Compared to other components out there this is one of the better ones made for this job.

                I got this for a 1x9 build I did for my daughter. She's 8 and her bike is sweeter than mine. The chain keeper does exactly what is intended to so, it's easy to set up and looks great.

                  Comments about Paul Components Chain Keeper:

                  This product is awesome when it works and horrible when it doesn't. The concept is great but the execution could be a lot better. The problem is that the clamps are not independently adjustable for each axis of movement, meaning that as you tighten down the bolt to keep it in place, it will shift and go out of adjustment. Very annoying. Works pretty much flawlessly once you get it dialed though.

                  I'd much rather use a clutch derailleur without a chain guide though. Much cleaner and no risk of chain rub.

                    I converted my Redline Conquest to a 1x10 and used this little gem for chain-keeping duties. Three races so far and no problems. Does take some time to get just right to avoid chain rub, but not nearly as bad as some reviewers led me to beleive. Looks and feels solid and does the job. Made by some dude named Paul.
