I have to make a chainline that is as close to fully enclosed at possible for work, we are going to be making a handcrank generator where all kinds of fun things like hair and clothes are going to want to get caught up in the gears… I am having trouble finding one of these that we can purchase, I was wondering if y’all could help me.
I have found lots of bike that have fully enclosed drivetrains (eg. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gear_case) but I’m having trouble finding them for sale independently of the bike, and for a 52+ chainring.
I think handbuilding is going to have to be the answer, I like the VO all aluminum one but $90 is a bit steep for this project considering all the other costs. I think I’m going to just build it out of acrylic.
I had found the chainglider earlier and it would totally work if it came in the 52 tooth size!
