Chainrings for 3x9 ?

Postby BigAirNig » Tue Aug 27, 2013 11:21 am

Hi folks

I am considering other chainrings and wonder how people 'out there' get on with brands other than the crank manufacturers they have....

I'm using a Raceface Next Carbon crank with Turbine chainrings at the moment. Wonder if I can get similar quality shifting and/or miles out of other brand rings?

Anyone tried the Superstar CNC Machined rings - come in various colours, so look nice and a great price ?

Middleburn? look a little bland, but seem to have good comments on-line

TA Chinook rings? look well designed

Uberbike ones look nice too ....

Blackspire ...

So really after any input from anyone who actually uses any of the above, or others I've not thought of?

Cheers

I've used the Superstar ones and the fitted my Race face cranks and seem to be wearing well.
