The Review
Needed an aftermarket rings replacement for my 5 arm M900 crankset and this was the only set i could find. For a 24-34-46 set it cost me $140. Not cheap at all. And the initial shifting was sketchy at times. But having worn in, the shifting is so much more acceptable, comparable to shimano's but still a notch lower. But this rings have seen through at least 4 sets of chain. And it still looks like it was installed yesterday. A testimony of the strength of the 7000 series Al used.

Strengths

Strong.

Looks good.

Weaknesses
Shimano still sets the standards.

Duration of product used

The Review
After only 3 months of use, my middle chainring teeth is worn out and and my chain keeps skipping. Sometimes when I stomp on the pedals and try to climb on the middle chainring, I get chainsuck to the granny ring.
It seems that these problems are not new as lots of people have posted similar problems in www.mtbr.com/reviews
Guess I'll go back to Shimano Chainrings.

Strengths
Light, good looking, Shift well when new

Weaknesses
Not durable, especially the middle chainring.

Duration of product used
3 months

Bike Setup
MOstly Recycled Coke cans ... Rusty steel ... Grease, oil, lube ... and lots of mud
