Submitted by Jens Jacob Iversen a Weekend Warrior from Århus, Denmark

Date Reviewed: November 5, 2002

Strengths:    Lasts long, no chainsuck, avalible in all sizes.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I often ride places with a lot of sand so it is incredible hard conditions for chain, chainrings and cassette. I belive it has about the same strenghs as other good rings but the profile with low teeth is very good in mud and sand. When it comes to shifting it shifts. I do not care about silky-smooth shifting like you get on shimano stuff. It just has to work. Try it...

Strengths:    Cheap, light and made of high quality Aluminium.

Weaknesses:    Bad shifting when shifting under load, it doesn't shift at all. By far not as smooth as the original XT chainring or as blackspire.

Bottom Line:   
Fairly good chainrings for a cvevery low price. But dont expect smooth shifting

Submitted by Darkman a Cross Country Rider from Ghent, Belgium

Date Reviewed: August 28, 2002

Strengths:    It lasts forever. It's still not worn out after about 4000 miles ! I change the chain regularly though. It's also a stiff chainring, with average weight. It comes in different sets of colors (that last).

Weaknesses:    Shifting isn't 100% fluid, when shifting to the big ring (32 to 44)

Bottom Line:   
A good product for a small price. It lasts long, but the shifting could be better if you're a racer.

Chainring bolt length.

I'm beating my head against the desk because I'm sure I am overanalyzing this. I need new chainring bolts to replace the old rusted garbage ones I have. Spider thickness is .15" (3.8mm) and the chainring I'm buying is 3mm (.125") thick. Total thickness of ~6.8mm to 7mm. How much engagement o ... Read More »

I really really really need a {34 tooth} 9 or 10speed front chainring

A 32 is not tall enough for where I go and how I ride [B]down[/B] the hills. I do not want to switch this bike to 1x10 or 1x11 because of the long steady [B]up[/B]hills. I have been unable to find a 34 tooth, 104BCD, middle ring. I am currently using a Raceface 9 speed that has been machined down ... Read More »

Changing Specialized Epic WC front chainring is it possible?

Is it possible to change the front chain ring to a double? I keep seeing good deals pop up on these bikes but only the 1x wc versions. I would love to try 1x, but I am concerned that I would want to go to a 2x10 at some point for some races.Read More »

Non spanner single-ring chainring nuts?

I'm trying to rid my crankset of the bashguard that came on it and will sensibly need new, narrower chainring fasteners. Specifically, I'm looking for the nut side that is held by a hex, rather than spanner. I know many will be tempted to mock me for my inability to make a chainring bolt spanner wr ... Read More »
