Go to a fabric Shop (Haberdashery) and ask for adhesive velcro. Use the soft side.
Just ask to see a piece first to test how sticky it as - as I have gotten some before that is very easy to peel off, which is a pain.
The more adhesive the better, if you get the right one it can last ages!! I even used some on the inside of my swingarm.
It quietens down the chain quite a bit... and prevents damage.

I saw this in a pic on Vital during the 2012 season and did the same with my upper guide on my DH bike - definitely makes a difference!!!

Love the details on Stevies machine - there are so many little hacks!!!

All good wish I could get my hands on it, pretty strange but I have the blackbox rear shock off one of the team global bikes and wanted to make a complete replica around it. If you ever seen it ask how much they want haha

Here is a pic of my old 222.... After breaking my KHS 'DH' bike I bought the frame (and some components off Greg Minnaar back in 2004. I rode that bike (with a few upgrades) up until 2011!!! Loved that thing! My first Dh bike, though, was a Schwinn 4

Even though bigger drops have been successfully done since then, that Jaw Drop is still a beast.... specially taking into account the equipment available at the time!
