How are you guys loosing clips due to wear? Don't you guys check your bike over once in a while? Seriously.

Clip for me. I have never lost one, worn one out, or broken one.

As per my last post. The pins and clip on the master link sit out further than the rest of the chain. This leaves them a bit more exposed to wear and damage, particularly if you've gone to a harder compound TMDesignworks guide, which also sits rather close/rubs in its stock position with their mounting bracket.

If everything was in perfect alignment, and you never got your chain guide caked up with mud and grit, sticks and rocks, etc you'd probably never have an issue.

We put it on top of it. The silicone can flex enough where it does not tare.

Sort of like this:
