For MTB Hollowgram series is the only one for me, tranferrable to road, which is a deal winner here.
Ok, good idéa and very nice and light cranks.
I know you disagree, but i still like to try the XX1-concept. Do you know if the XX-spider fits Hollowgram cranks? I guess not...
And second question. Do you think it is possible for you (EP) to create a XX1-spider for Hollowgram cranks?
Maybe Cannondale or Sram will create one themselves as for the Specialized cranks. I'm thinking of if/when the World Cup-XC racers like Fontana and Fumic will start to run XX1. I'm sure they will try to keep their nice Hollowgram cranks, if possible.
The XX rings don´t fit any other BCD, they have their own properitary BCD which is something like 76mm with two offset bolt holes as far I know.
I CAN do spiders if there´s enough demand, Hollowgrams is the best aluminum cranks out there, nearest competitor is far behind, a good buy at 500-700 usd for cranks only.
IF and only IF the XX1 front rings work well and no need for chainwatcher, I would recommend them, they have logically spent a lot of time and money in R&D than most of us together.
I have seen the rings in real life, a lot of CNC machining and specific teeths for inner and outer links, maximum chain holding but no chain suck.
They come in a variety of sizes too so spiders for these rings are a good opportunity to widen the use of XX1 rings.
I will get a XX1 crankset to make a spider for it very soon.
So there is interest in wide/narrow teeth chainrings to fit XX? We have some on the way (not posted yet but will be soon), so keep an eye out on our site. For now, we have other options for you folks w/ power meter cranks that you want to continue to use with 1x10 or 1x11 setups:
