Eurobike 2016: Carbocage Chainguides
This article was originally published on Singletrackworld.com, but with the popularity in 1 x drivetrains we thought it might be of interested over here too.
Are you lacking bling? Got a carbon bike, and not sure how to make it lighter or fancier? Well fret no more, because it turns out you can always fit more carbon on a bike, and that’s what Carbocage exist for.
A Carbocage is not a prison made of pasta, nor the feeding pen we put Jason Miles in the night before a race, but a German company making carbon fibre chain guides, amongst other widgets. They caught our eye at Eurobike because of the relatively simple construction method: CNCed flat layers of carbon with spacers.
You can only buy direct from their website at the moment, but on the stand they said they’re currently looking for a UK distributor.
