Here's what others have to say...

I love the idea of a single chainring, but I lost my confidence in SRAM's quality control. As I was installing the chainring, one of the bolts broke off before reaching the torque requirement. The other 4 bolts were fine including the heavier steel bolt that fit under the crank arm. The durability of the bolts is questionable. The photo shows the broken bolts, and also appear to be an abstraction of my facial expression at the moment of the brake. There are two bolts and a washer that join each chainring-hole. I probably just had bad luck and received a defective unit. I hope I will get an exchange, because I like the concept of a single chainring crank for multi-speed drive-train. Please advise; I already tried calling SRAM.

Interesting concept, but questionable QC


Unanswered Question

On the drop down option the 52t is listed with the 110mm BDC; while on the description it is listed with 130mm Bolt Circle Diameter. Which one is it? Also can this chainring fit on to the SRAM Force CX1 crankset?

The fabric and weaving is top notch, and the replica graphics look almost identical to what the pros actually wear. Unfortunately, the fit runs slightly big in a strange manner for a European company. I usually fit perfectly into a size Small in Santini's, which was the maker for Orica's previous kit, and I was hoping for a similar fit with this Jersey made by Craft, which is Swiss I believe; however, the pro-style neck is too big, the chest and armpits are snug, which is okay, but the stomach and shoulder areas are a bit relaxed. These are strange specs. Was craft expecting consumers to be small chested with big shoulders and a beer belly?!? As a replica Jersey of a pro-team, I was expecting a racing-cut, as in slim, but it turned out to be a strange club-cut.

I use these as liners for mountaineering, and they are the best so far. They are not the warmest, but they are thin enough to fit inside the inner liner mittens of my OR Alti-Mits. Because the Gore Bike Wear Universal Gloves also have silicone pads on all the fingers, I can grip my water bottles without worries of dropping while pouring in the melted snow when I snow camp. I can't recommend these pair if your hands get cold easily, but they work for me very well. They also dry quickly even in freezing temperatures, so if I get them a little wet from the snow melting process they don't turn into popsicles. I also bought a pair of Giordana's over and under liner gloves to compare, and I will use them for their intended purpose, which is cycling only, because those pair do not have silicone pads on the thumbs.

I bought them to possibly use for mountaineering as well, but it appears that they're best only as liners for cycling. They do not have silicone pads on the thumbs, which makes them slippery for gripping water bottles during the snow melting process. They are thin enough though to fit inside my Pearl Izumi Cyclone gloves, so I will combine them for really cold days on the bike. For multi-sport liners, such as in mountaineering, the Gore Bike Wear Universal Gloves work great due to the silicone pads on the thumbs as well as the other fingers.
