can you do this deal for the sram spiderless rings too? (specifically a 32t BB30-suited item in blue).

have just ordered one through ubyk but am slightly concerned that they indicate a 8-10 day delivery for something which they claim to have stock of.

Tehan, I understand you are considering making a 40 T cog for XTR 9 speed cassette's. I would purchase one if you make them.

Hi Marcin,

The adapter looks great! But no XTR compatibility?

Really great that the weight is reduced over the single cog designs too.

Any update on the Narrow/ Wide Hollowgram spiderless rings?

Thanks!

Ha,
We are actually doing sram narrow wide right now. 28...36T.
Reason they are not on website is that we are waiting for the studio photos... There will be a new tab to make it clear for all.

But if you order Sram spiderless ring on my web right now you WILL get narrow/wide version. We have stopped making normal one 2 months ago.




Regards cassette cluster. Yes it does not fit XTR. But good thing is that if you get XT and my cluster it actually weight almost same as 11-36 XTR!
XTR would make no sens as well, because last 4 cogs are titanium (hence the price) and you would need to take them off. Rest of the rings are steel. - same as XT.


Hollowgram rings are going on the mill next. They will look identical to sram ones. Same price as well.
