A couple of things to decide - chain line and axle length. Axle length may or may-not be equidistant ...

Re: Chain catcher?

I bought a chain catcher a couple of years ago. Brilliant - the chain has never dropped since. One day I might even fit it to the bike. :? Still in the garage in its packet. :D :lol: Careful!
