    I guess I should say the chain was riding up against the guard or
    channeled between the guard and chain wheel.

    I bought a bike for my wife from Performance Bike.

    Thanks for the update Yan.
    I hope the 8H comes in red.

    that was a good match to hide those scrapes and dings.

    Also agree.

    When and if the Downtube 8H comes avalable again I'll be in line.
    If shopping you should definitely consider a Downtube.
    I was completely happy with the product and service.
