Strength:

Strong and stiff, smooth and quiet.

Weakness:

Not readily available in stores. Needs to be ordered for the most part.

If you are running a single speed or a 9/8x1 setup, this is a great chainring. buy 2 if you can get them.

Strength:

Light and cheap. Looks badass at first. Small ring will fit on external bearing style bottom brackets.

Weakness:

Very crappy alloy. Setup is a bit of a pain. No shifting ramps.

Do not buy this crap! I got both a middle and granny at REI, for about $36 all together...that means cheap. Installed, tuned drive train...had to adjust the front derailleur like crazy just to get it to shift. Then, easy ride in Winter Park and I had nothing but trouble. Rough shifts and nasty clunking and grinding from the front when shifting. Broke a tooth in the first 10 miles of riding. After that NASTY chainsuck whenever shifting to the granny up front under anything close to load. I ditched these and went back to XTs thanks to REIs magical return policy. More expensive but worth it...since they will shift without losing a tooth whenever they bite...kinda like a shark I guess.

Strength:

These are great, solid chainrings for singlespeed or single chainring applications. Great buy for the money!

Weakness:

Not as durable as similar stainless steel chainrings (surly) for mountain biking purposes. These are not designed for shifting with a front derailleur. This is not really a product weakness, as they are not intended for that purpose. There are no ramps or pins to facilitate shifting, and the package is explicit about them being for singlespeed or 5 to 9-speed compatible (meaning no front shifting). Don't make the same mistake as the previous reviewer, as you will be an angry customer due to your ignorance.

Great chainrings for the money, granted you use them as intended...No front shifting. Perfect for singlespeed or setting up a 1x9 29er (or something similar). Do not purchase these to replace your old chainrings for shifting and you will be happy.
