Strengths:    Not sure...

Weaknesses:    Chainrings, chainrings, chainrings...

Bottom Line:   
I've had no problems with the strength of the crankset itself, but the chainrings. They may as well make them out of plastic. I had to replace the big and middle WITHIN one month of riding. If I would have known they were going to be a problem I would have went with the Race Face crankset to begin with, instead of having to purchase the RF rings (which are awesome, by the way). I've been riding for over 20 years, and my old XTR crankset lasted for a long, long time, without replacing anything. When I decide to replace this crankset, XT, XTR, or Race Face. But never a Bontrager again.

Continental Race King and Kenda 24seven

I have one of each and am currently using the Conti on the front and the Kenda on the rear for CX racing. I plan to use them for XC racing this spring. I thought since these are similar tread patterns I would share some thoughts and see if anyone else has thought about swapping out the Conti's in fa ... Read More »

My First Enduro Race

I had my first Enduro race yesterday. It was a ton of fun, and a whole lot harder than I expected. There is a big difference between riding for fun, and riding against the clock. I ended up right in the middle of my "masters" sport group. I think if I wasn't able to blow downhill with reckless ab ... Read More »
