Quick Megatower Chainstay Chip Rattle Solution

A short video on why the chainstay chip on the Santa Cruz Megatower can rattle and what to do about it.

 Thanks for the vid! It's a clear to me now and seems a really solid solution for the loose flip chip issue! Sander

 @codahale do you ride without the grub screw in (after sanding down the chip)?

 No, the grub screw goes back in. Otherwise the chip falls out when you take the rear axle out.

 @codahale: Yeah. Do you find the grub screw stays nipped up when the flip chip is flush? The rattling loose (and making noise) is something I'm not too keen about. That's why I'm thinking if I could ride without the screw and just be mindful when removing the axel.

 @ShreddingBliss: It doesn’t rattle at all, grub screw or no, because the chamfered side of the chip is compressed into the chainstay by the axle. It only rattles when the axle is out.

 Is it ok if i post it on the FB site for MT and HT riders?

 Sure, go for it. Only other thing I’d mention is that apparently Santa Cruz will provide you with a thinner replacement chip if you ask, which seems like it’d be preferable to sanding one down yourself.
