Andre Jute, moving towards the zero maintenance bicycle, has exhaustively investigated fully enclosed chain cases, which generally fit only bikes with internal hub gears. He recommends only the Hebie Chainglider.

 

Towards a Zero Maintenance Bike
The Hebie Chainglider

ARTICLE IN PROGRESS.

This is a decision table for a Rohloff-equipped 29-er like my Utopia Kranich, intended to enable a decision between all the permitted Rohloff chainring/sprocket ratios a tourer may want to consider for which a Hebie Chainglider is also available. Doubleclick the table to see it full size. The specifics are a 60mm tyre on a 622mm rim, and a cadence of 60rpm. Adjust for your preferred pedaling cadence and tire size.
