    Chain Holders?

    Does anyone use chain holders? Do they work well? They hold the chain where the cassette would be when you take off the wheel so you can turn the crank without scratching up your chain stay, would anyone be interested in getting one?

    That's exactly what I've done. I took a junk hub and cassette and use it in place of the wheel to give the chain a place to run on while cleaning it. Pedros and a couple of others make commercial versions but mine was free.

    A lot of frames come with a brazed or welded on peg on the seatstay above the driveside dropout. It's there to drape the chain over while the wheel is out but I would never turn the crank while it's hanging there.
