Me and my dad made a top guide to replace my DMR chaincage out of a bit of plastic and some bolts, had it on since november and my chain just will not come off, before that it came off in a 4X race and bent my chain so I was screwed.
I'll try and get some pics up.

I'm not slagging off DMR though, they make some really good products.

Nop,press drill, hand saw, grinder, file and a lot of time. Aprox 6 hrs. I am making an other adapter for the new rear Fox shock DHX 5 on the same bike. Pics to come.

Here is the bracket for the Fox DHX 5.0 on Santacruz Super 8. Lots of work but the air chamber was bigger then the Vanilla RC. So that wy i have to modify the bracket.
