The clamp was not installed as promised in product description. I had to figure it out without instructions. Scary. Great looking product though.
Have this on 2 bikes. Both have Sugino triple cranksets and SRAM 9-speed chains. Chainrings are 48-36-24 and 48-36-26. Both were fairly easy to adjust and both shift reliably and pretty smoothly. Both are actuated with DiaCompe friction shifters. I have added N-Gear Jump-Stops on both bikes because no wide range front derailler can entirely prevent missed shifts on the inside. Unless corralled, dancing chains will sometimes dance off on their own.
