Feedback Sports continues their growth through acquisition with their new Chain Keeper. Originally developed by Butter, they’ve bought the design rights and will produce their own version while allowing Butter to continue making and selling theirs separately. But, it’s not just a carbon copy, the Feedback Sports model will come with dropout fittings for both standard quick release and 12mm thru axle, using an expanding end to hold the unit and adapter firmly in place.

Simply twist the red knob on the end to expand and tighten the axle end into place, the rest the chain on the roller. This keeps proper chain tension while your bike’s in the stand without its wheel, giving you better access to things for cleaning and maintenance. Retail is $39.99.

The Scorpion Stand gets a welcome update for shops and travelers. The new two piece design lets it fold flat for shipping, saving a ton of space. Which also saves you space in your car or garage when not in use.

They’ve also added a small push-button release for the sleeve, making whichever crank spindle adapter you use more securely held in place when removing the bike from the stand. It comes in black, red, torquoise or green for $59.99.

The Rakk XL is a new wider version of their tire-holding bike stand, made to fit 2.5″ to 5″ tires equally well. It gets adjustable cones and bottom plates to fit multiple tire sizes securely. Retail is $49.99 each.

I wish Feedback would offer their trainer fork mount stand as a stand alone item to use with other trainers.

Home made chain keepers can be nearly free. Get a QR rear hub salvaged from a scrapped wheel and a worn out cassette or freewheel. Just clamp it into the dropouts and loop the chain over one of the cogs. LBSs often have badly damaged wheels you can have for little to no cost.

Agreed Dave. There is no reason to pay $$$$ for a problem that requires a simple solution. Most important thing is never forget the axle, if you’ve removed the wheel to get the bike in the car prior to hitting the trails. Or not hitting the trials. Doh

It’s very nice, I would like it. I just use a stick and put it above the seat stays.

Park tool makes an excellent chain keeper, its about 18 dollars. No way I’m spending 40 bucks for something that gets blasted with water and degreaser every few days.
