Keeping people from tucking their pants into their socks is good enough for us, but it's not the only reason having a chainguard is an absolute no brainer for riding in the city. With all the grit and grime the risk of needing to replace chains after even just a year of city abuse grows significantly. Hebie's ingenious chainglider solves all these problems, and you'll hardly even know it's there. By "floating" over the chain, the Chainglider hides in plain sight and keeps all that nasty bike grease where it belongs - on the chain. Installation is a cinch too, no tools needed! Available in a variety of sizes, the chainglider is meant to fit any bike with a Nexus internal gear hub. The rear portion of the chainglider is sold separately.
- Be sure to buy the matching rear chainglider to have it hang properly
Hebie Company History: In 1868, Heinrich Hemmelskamp founded Hebie as a humble cork-cutting factory in Bielefeld, Germany. He initially worked closely with pubs and drinks merchants but after the invention of the bicycle the company found its calling in the material procurement and designing of cork handlebar grips. By 1905 the manufacturing of celluloid handles was common and the in-house synthetics sector was in full swing. They began to develop chain guards, air pumps, and mudguards. Over the course of the 20th century the company adapted to the many changes, competitors and war to name a couple, yet succeeded in building a company that promised to build the highest quality product. Despite a growing interest in far-east production, Hebie tightened their range of products and ensured that they only produced the highest quality product (90% in their plant in Bielefeld) and they continue to do so to this day.
