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.

Any trails in or around the area? Anyone go often? The few people I ride with can't go as often and don't want to venture off of simple XC riding and I'm getting bored. I got a truck to assist with shuttle runs!Read More »

Rebuilding Help - Earthquake Jake Watson - 1996 Alpinestars RSA 940 Downhill Bike

Dear MTBR Family- I recently found through Jake's facebook page, a past friend who owned a motorcycle and had traded for Jake's 1996 Alpinestars RSA 940 downhill bike. The frame was too big for the guy and he removed all the parts over the years. At some point, the rear linkage was removed. ... Read More »

Best Light and All Mountain to Downhill Ready Crankset with 24mm Spindle

I was all set to grab the new SixC cranks, but they only come in 30mm spindles and there are no ceramic bottom brackets for a BB92 frame that I can find for those. 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 »
