Strengths:    Strong and stiff, smooth and quiet.

Weaknesses:    Not readily available in stores. Needs to be ordered for the most part.

Bottom Line:   
If you are running a single speed or a 9/8x1 setup, this is a great chainring. buy 2 if you can get them.

Strengths:    These are great, solid chainrings for singlespeed or single chainring applications. Great buy for the money!

Weaknesses:    Not as durable as similar stainless steel chainrings (surly) for mountain biking purposes. These are not designed for shifting with a front derailleur. This is not really a product weakness, as they are not intended for that purpose. There are no ramps or pins to facilitate shifting, and the package is explicit about them being for singlespeed or 5 to 9-speed compatible (meaning no front shifting). Don't make the same mistake as the previous reviewer, as you will be an angry customer due to your ignorance.

Bottom Line:   
Great chainrings for the money, granted you use them as intended...No front shifting. Perfect for singlespeed or setting up a 1x9 29er (or something similar). Do not purchase these to replace your old chainrings for shifting and you will be happy.

Strengths:    Light and cheap. Looks badass at first. Small ring will fit on external bearing style bottom brackets.

Weaknesses:    Very crappy alloy. Setup is a bit of a pain. No shifting ramps.

Bottom Line:   
Do not buy this crap! I got both a middle and granny at REI, for about $36 all together...that means cheap. Installed, tuned drive train...had to adjust the front derailleur like crazy just to get it to shift. Then, easy ride in Winter Park and I had nothing but trouble. Rough shifts and nasty clunking and grinding from the front when shifting. Broke a tooth in the first 10 miles of riding. After that NASTY chainsuck whenever shifting to the granny up front under anything close to load. I ditched these and went back to XTs thanks to REIs magical return policy. More expensive but worth it...since they will shift without losing a tooth whenever they bite...kinda like a shark I guess.

Number of chainrings

This is my first year mountain biking. I picked up a bike on craigslist at the start of the season. It's a fairly heavy 29er (Astrix Monk) with 2 chainrings. I live in northern Utah so most of my rides are straight up and then straight back down. I'm in pretty good shape (run 7-10 miles regularl ... Read More »
