    OK, I have one of these and honestly don't remember why I bought it... when/why is this thing helpful? I don't find it necessary for cleaning the chain, am I missing something?

    This is useful when transporting the bike with the rear wheel off. Keeps the tension on the chain.

    Even though the product literature mentions that I didn't think of it as a big deal but now I get it, thanks.

    When I clean bikes I take the wheels off and clean them at the same time. The 'dummy hub' or 'chain rest' allows you to keep tension on the chain so it's not flopping about getting the frame oily, and to clean the chain easier as well.

    Thanks, folks. I'm just losing my mind. I swear when I bought it, there was a really specific reason and for the life of me I don't know why.

    I must spread some Reputation around before giving it to cxwrench (and velodog) again.

    You forgot your bananas.

    That would be cooler if it was an original Cooks Brothers QR.

    And if you have a thru axle rear, you can take the disc off the short dummy hub axle and thread the TA skewer thru it
