Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Above, even with, or below the chain?

Mount it so the tip is just below the top of the inner chainring.

Some examples:

I've seen pictures/read of folks mounting it all three ways.
Even seemed to make the most sense, but you never know.

I used to think I didn't need one of these as long as my FD was properly adjusted. I then saw how many bikes in the TdF were using them -- I've used one like this for the past five years -- very cheap insurance to provent damaging a carbon fiber frame.

Tip: replace the crappy phillips head bolt with a hex bolt. Makes getting it tight a lot easier. Plus it let me use my long 5mm t-handle to reach in there.
