Strengths:    Beefy, round, nice basic finish

Weaknesses:    Maybe too beefy?

Bottom Line:   
Probably a little overbuilt for my XC needs, Black Spire DH rings are great because the come in so many sizes & BCD patterns and are all in the "normal range" of sizes required by the Rohloff Speedhub.

They're fat suckers, gotta be 3 or 4mm thick at the mounting position, but they're stiff as heck and wear well. Even the black anodization stands up pretty well as the miles are piled on.

I've got two on two different bikes, both 40T, one a 5-bolt compact and the other a 4-bolt. They're both round — no hot spots apparent on the SS-like setups.

If you're not too gram conscious and in a bind for the right size DH/SS ring, there's a good chance Black Spire hase the size you need.

The bottom bracket I want is the Enduro XD - 15, thus would want a comparable crankset to the SixC with a 24mm spindle. Any recommendat ... Read More »

I ride one or two laps around Yargo almost every weekend. I almost alway ride on Saturday so I go CCW most rides. Today, however I was riding Yargo CW on my SS and saw something I'd never seen before. Between miles 11 and 12 was a small green post or picket that had "downhill trail" written on i ... Read More »

Good film segments NOT focused on big hits and fast/flowy downhill

I love watching guys fly down North Shore trails and hit 20 foot gaps on their slacked out dual crown bikes as much as the next guy, but I don't ride that way (or anywhere close to that level). Sometimes I want to watch videos about guys doing things more similar to my rides, just way way better. S ... Read More »
