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.

xx1 crank & chainring with a zee derailleur for a chainguideless 1x10 setup?

Hey, I'm running SS atm with an XX1 crankset and a Wolftooth chainring. I'd like to go 1x10 for the time being with a Zee derailleur/shifter, my original 32t XX1 chainring and a 11-36 casette. Without chainguide. Would that be a compatible combination?Read More »

1x10 chainring lifespan?

Just wondering if anybody had an idea what a ballpark number mileage-wise should a single chainring last. My current one is starting to "sharkfin" a bit and since I'm replacing the chain and cassette it's getting replaced too. The chainring has 911miles on it. Does that seem like a decent lifespa ...

Single (1x10) Chainring Options (Wolf tooth, Race Face, etc)

So, this single chainring aftermarket is heating up with Wolf Tooth, RF, Absolute, etc., now in the market. Are there any design/production/quality difference among these products? What makes WT's chainrings different from those of RaceFace? Just curious.Read More »

Anyone use 64 bcd or bmx granny chainring?

Before I say the C word, I will say that I love my Kona Unit SS. But I want to put a... Cassette on it. Gasp. Since you guys know all about mounting chainrings to cranks and I know very little with the help of an iPhone for "searching" I don't have a computer. I currently live in a trailer. A ...
