Here's what others have to say...

5 5

medium frame - 2.42lb (1,102g)

This is still one of the best/fastest frames I've ever ridden. Its as smooth and nimble as a hardtail 29er can get. I've owned superflys, Niners, and a number of FS bikes and I have to say this is a race winning machine on most courses. If you have any questions or would like help with a build I'd be happy to help. adewitt@competitivecyclist.com or 801-736-6396 ext 5630

So far so go.

I've gotten a handful of rides on the ring and it's working great so far. I converted a double setup and fixed the FD in place just in case there were some issues with chain drop but nothing yet. I'll be taking the FD off soon and will repost if needed.

The raised sections of the ring seen in the picture are built in backs for the chainring bolts so no need for that special tool to hold and keep things from turning. No need for SS specific bolts either, just use what was on the crank.

The only complaint is the tooth profile. Its much smaller than Sram Narrow/wide or even wolftooth. To me it looks much more like the older geared tooth profile. So far it still holds the chain but....

Sos,

PVC rollers are cheap to make and fairly inexpensive, but I wore them out in half a season. After a couple months the plastic warped and it rode like the worst washboard road ever.

Go Alloy. It stays round, smooth, and consist for years. Its worth the little extra money. I upgraded to this specific pair and loved it.
