I measured my chain with a proprietary gauge and found it had stretched, but not beyond the recommended limits. I replaced the chain and the cassette together and resumed my trail riding. I hadn't noticed, until a following rider pointed out, that the rear deraiileur was snatching fore and aft when pedalling under load on the middle ring. It wasn't affecting shifting and the chain wasn't jumping but something was wrong. I figured the middle chain ring had worn and I was seeing chain suck. I replaced the chain ring, like for like, and performance is back to normal. I probably had about 5 seasons out of the original, so I have no issue with durability or longevity. Solid kit.
Replaced old XT granny ring with new.
Also replaced the middle ring at the same time with standard Deore which works superb and is half the cost of XT!
(However worth noting the standard Deore granny ring will fit XT cranks but needs fettling! hardly worth the hassle for the extra couple of quid, go XT)
Job done works a treat my fellow Mud Monkeys : ~ )
XT chainrings I cannot fault them these are a nice quality, gear shifting is nice and smooth I like them.
Good value chainrings
My last one did over 4000 miles of xc before needing to be changed so decided to stick with the genuine shimano. Lasts ages shifts perfect what more can you ask for?
Great and easy replacements.
Great quality the XT chainrings, light and durable and changes gear nicely.
Good quality chainring set.
I stuck with the xt chainrings as they were the original spec on the bike (specailized pro carbon stumpjumper)and had proved themselves.Amazingly they were 4 years old and had been through all the winter riding often caked up with mud and clarts and still lasted all this time. They were about totalled by the time i had replaced them but for them to take this abuse and for so long it was an obvious choice
