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.

First race

I have experience in racing, just not on a bicycle. It's a pretty easy 20 miles compared to what I ride everyday. I'm ready for a slap in the face though, any tips from you experienced guys would be appreciated. Edit: I'm also scared. Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkRead More »

Duo/Xera and some cheap-o lights - 18 hour race report

My new combo worked outstanding in this weekend's race. I rode ~4 hours at night with this set up and it was flawless. The optics work so well vs. the reflectors on both the bar (Duo) and helmet (Xera - used the spot optic vs. the stock one). I used my GMG batteries with no issues and charged aft ... Read More »

First cx race of the season. No *pop* in my legs.

This is my third season of cx. I'm about 6 weeks into training for cx this year. I raced endurance XC all summer. I've not changed anything diet wise or training wise in the last few weeks. I haven't been sleeping a whole lot this week, though . If the race would have been a time trial effort, I w ... Read More »

First race - Lost motivation

Finally there was a race at my 'home track' where I've been riding for the last year and a half. This was the first race I ever took part in and just decided to do it for fun. I guess you'd call it an XC race but I'm not sure about that.. The race was 3 laps of a very technical track that I am quit ... Read More »
