Just bought a Spot Longboard 9(complete bike) and I'd like to upgrade to a lighter higher quality set. What do you guys recommend? I'm not cheap either so l don't mind paying for quality parts.
Middleburn are currently developing a 27t 94 bcd (and are just about to release their 29t)mtnfiend said:+1 more for the Middleburn. Already stated by flafonta "Light, Looks great, Lots of gear combinations," I would add available with square taper.
You can also look for older Race Face Turbine or Next Carbon LP cranks. I picked up a square taper version of the Turbine. I wanted the Next LP but couldn't find quickly enough. Reason for this recommendation is that you can get the crank in 94 bcd, allowing a middle ring size down to 29. I'm running a 30 x 12-34 on my 1x9. The lower range was much appreciated compared to my previous 34 x 12-24.
These parts are definitely sexy! Do you have a link to the new Middleburn you're talking about?bonesetter2004 said:Middleburn are currently developing a 27t 94 bcd (and are just about to release their 29t)
Still not a single chain drop yet. Over 500 miles of riding, including an endurance race with some rocky staircases.bonesetter2004 said:Still not using any chain drop devise then?
I didn't think that was possible. The smallest currently available is a 29t. Ritchey made a 28t ring for their original 2x9 drivetrain, but it needed some special small diameter chainring bolts and special washers. I don't think there is any way a 27t 94mm BCD chainring is feasable. But then again, I hope you are right!bonesetter2004 said:Middleburn are currently developing a 27t 94 bcd (and are just about to release their 29t)
