This chainring works fine with my SRAM 1x drivetrain but was a pain to install on my Force hidden- bolt crankset. The internet offers how-to tips on removing and re-installing the spider, but the process isnt self-evident if youre used to working with traditional bolt-on chainrings. SRAMs packaging includes no instructions.
I've been using these chains for over three years now and love them.
I ride about 200 miles a week in the winter and up to 500 miles a week in the summer. I was getting tired of the Shimano chains wearing out so fast and a local bike shop recommended them.
I really love the quick release link, I clean my chain a lot and it makes that job so much easier.
They are a little heavy that's why I gave it 4 stars
I stopped using pins to hold my chains together years ago when I discovered these links. The pin was always the weakest part of the chain. These links are every bit as strong as the rest of the chain and really easy to install. For the thousands of miles on multiple bikes I have used these I have never had one come apart on the road.
I recently got this for my Tacx Neo for indoor Zwifting this winter. I do about 250 miles a week on Zwift and I really wanted a premium cassette for buttery smooth shifting and this 11-36 Force cassette delivered!!! I got it on a daily special for 65 dollars and went a head and got an 11-32 while I was at it. I did the whole Planet Hoth thing last year but after my insulated water bottles froze solid I knew this year I would spend the cash and stay in my living room. I normally run an 10-42 Sram XX1 1199 MTB cassette on my carbon Giant TCX but after demoing Zwift at the LBS I learned the hills on Zwift were about 70% of real hills!!! this a perfect indoor training cassette and I would recommend it to anyone serious about cycling.
