I just got around to replacing my old raceface rings with some new Q rings. I've been using the Q-rings on my road bike and have been pleased with the results so I decided to give it a try.

I mounted them to a Race face Deus crankset. I needed to adjust my derailleur a bit to get them shifting right. The biggest complaint about the Q rings is their decreased shifting precision. I haven't had a problem with them on my road bike, but I know lots who have. So far shifting on my mtb has been good, although I haven't subjected to it a true thrashing

Welcome to the Q-ring family!!

I've had the q-rings for a while. It doesn't take a long time to get used to the slight delay in shifting. Most of this is due to the ramps being in slightly different positions in relation to the front derailleur, and the FD having the chain moving vertically up and down more as you shift. On the mtb there's generally a bit more going on as you're riding so the delay is noticed less.
