ConsNeeded alteration to fit
ProsSilent, chain lasts, clean
The Rohloff model has more space in the rear fitting to clear the hub.
Needs a thin steel chainring to avoid front rub.
Cleared the chain stay, but clashed with the brake stay, forcing the end over so took a round Surform to the chainglider and made a channel to allow it to sit vertical alongside the brake stay. Taped over the hole!
Silent in use once I tensioned the chain properly, a loose chain rubbed with a 'derailleur purring' sound.
Chain Guard Roloff / Thorn Xxp

ConsVery High Friction/ doesn't fit XXP bike
ProsIf I could get it to fit it would stop the oil
Bought this for my wife's Thorn XXP and fitted. The rear part will not go on because the Red Pip (can't see any need for this) fouls the upright in the rear frame triangle and bends the guard making it almost impossible to turn the pedals. Even without the pip the level of friction is unacceptably high so I took it straight off again.

Consfriction - but it's harmless if you see what I mean
Proschain stays oiled and dry, clean frame and rider
The design is ingenious cos it's a geometric challenge to make a chaincase which needs no frame attachment. Hebie rise to the challenge, and the result is a success. Ok, it adds friction to the chain-run, but you can't have everything and the friction is just the chainglider gripping the chainwheel, ie plastic on metal so it's "harmless friction". And it's great being able to grab the chainstay when you're carrying the bike up steps - look, clean hands!
Chain Guard Rohloff / Thorn Raven Sport

Took a while to get fitted, no instructions supplied. Required the splitting and re joining of the chain to allow guard to be aligned. Had to remove approx 2.5 cm from the end of guard as too long for chain stays causing guard to rub aginst rear sprocket.
But once fitted and end cap secured in place it looks perfect and performs without fault.

The Reply Below Mine Says Chainglider Incompatible.
06 Dec 2014
I am surprised at your reply as I now see you were asked and answered the same question in February, and I have read several comments to the same effect in the Forum, e.g. "The Chainglider just won't work with Thorn's aluminum chainrings. Those 'rings are too thick below the teeth and will rub on either side of the Chainglider and result in excessive operating friction and sadly will scuff the finish on the chainring. Taken from

I apologise for the incorrect information provided in my previous response, the forum is run by a different department so any information within it usually does not make it to us. I was merely commenting based on what we get come through the parts sales/returns side of the business rather than the Thorn bikes side of the company.

Chaingring For Hebie Chainglieder 38T
02 Feb 2014
I recently purchased a new Hebie Chainglider as a replacement for one I have used for 5 years. Unfortuneately I purchased the 38T version instead of the 42T version I had. So I either have to replace my chainring or return and/or buy the correct Hebie. The current chainring is quite worn after having been used for 5 years, so I am therefore looking for a BCD130mm 38T chainring. I have been looking at your web sites, but haven't been able to find one. Do you have one to recommend.

I have previously tried a Thorn 7075T6/42T. That chainring was to thick for the Hebie chain guard. The chainring therefore need to be thinner that this one.

I appreciate you assistance.

I'm afraid the only chainring that we will have in 38T in the Rohloff compatible 3/32" chain size is our own Thorn ring. Most 3/32" chainrings will be this thickness.
