Floating style chainguard.

Sorry I haven't posted in so long. Still bicycling/commuting. Not as much due to work and family but I can’t give it up!

So I bought this chainguard from a local cyclist that was selling his on craigslist. Pretty sure it’s this OGK chainguard by Soma Fabrications:

The only hangup was that the seat tube was a little thicker than the downtube.  So, I had to use a larger hoseclamp for the thicker tube. The included tube wraparounds weren’t long enough.  I couldn’t get it to set flat and upright. It kinda juts out in the back, but since your pants go up when you pedal, it doesn’t get caught.  Gotta be careful when you bring you straddle the bike, or you could hit it.  Kinda “floats” over the chain. Pretty cool.  Working well so far.
