Hi KoenM, the switch was just left there for the photography, after messing about with the wheels. It might go without saying but this was tested on a mountain bike where heavier hits could knock the chain off. It wasn't a painfully regular occurrence and it was noticeably more stable on smoother trails.

I have installed this on a road/cross/gravelbike and I never had a dropped chain, ok it was with brifters and I didn't do singletrack but from all the reviews I've seen, dropped chains was never a complaint. Maybe because your clutch wasn't on like on the photo's?

A google suggests you can get last gen SRAM NX 1x11 or Deore 1x10 for a bit more.  Feels like a compromise too many to me..

Upgraders would be better served by used kit from eBay and I can't see OEMs speccing much of this either with Sunrace about.
