|You see that quite often in MTB shots as well. I think it's due to the rough road surface.|

|It's not really in his hand, just the perspective of the photo makes it seem so. I think it's the pad on an arm rest on his aero' bars.|

|Must be some rough terrain. Those things are pretty much unbreakable.|

Here in Belgium I often ride cobbled roads and on these roads your chain is jumping a lot, sometimes even touching the frame. I rode the postal bikes as well, and never saw problems with the chain tension.
