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.

Anyone know how much taller a 27.5 2.0 race king is vs a 26 2.0 race king? Yes this is for a potential conversion of my RM vertex 70. I am reading that when it's all said and done it only amounts to a half inch larger diameter on any conversion but any experiences would be appreciated! Sent f ... Read More »

80s Race Build - Ideas?

I'm going to race my Land Shark in a 50 mile gravel race in a month or so and am looking for some ideas for a mid 80s race build. The bike currently has a full deer head group with a roller cam rear brake. It is a hilly coarse so I will be shifting a lot. The current rear setup almost always re ... Read More »
