A fellow cyclist whom I talked to to-day advised me to use a small piece of wood with a groove sawed into the middle then wedged in the teeth of the bottom part of the chainwheel and maybe secured with a strap, sounds like a good idea, I'll give it a try next time. Bob.J.
I can't quite picture that arrangement in my mind's eye - do you have any pics? My immediate thought is that the wood attached to the chainwheel presents an even bigger 'strike area' thus making damage more likely?
Yes , you do have a point, no pics cos I haven't tried it but maybe a good idea might be to put some foam or bubble wrap round the wood. The other option which I thought of was to take the chainwheel completely off, wrap it in some clothing and put it in the pannier bag. To do this however would require taking the appropriate tools.
