before on my addict i was using a dog fang.. but now on this new build, the tube is not perfectly round, so can't use the dog fang.
i'm running QXL with etap (planning on doing) and would like to install a lightweight chain catcher. i saw KCNC ones but it's 19g.. so any other that's lighter weight?

this is the lightest one i've found thus far:

I just put one on that's 5-6gr (weighed it myself). I paid 8-9usd for it.

It was branded "trigo" and you might find it on aliexpress. I bought it in China.

I ran a Token for years but switched to a Campag one when I made the change over from Shimano to Campag. I took a weight hit but my OCD required it.
