I have some rotor cranks and q rings coming this week.
Anyone know how to set up the front mech with these rings?

raise it up quite a bit, then its just trial and error. I didn't find it too hard took maybe 20-30 minutes

I found it to be pretty easy, as well. Raised the front D up, until it cleared the outer ring, by about a millimeter, at the rings highest point. After that, just minor adjustments were needed to dial it in. Once I got it where it needed to be, I didn't have to mess with it, any more. Shifts up and down like it should, and I don't drop the chain, off either side.

Thanks for that,i have the rotor cranks coming with the q rings and was worried it might be a pain to set up,reading some guys
on line they say it rubs.
I have super record 11 if that helps.
Anymore info i would be grateful.

When I set 'em up on the stand, no rubbing at all. The first time I rode 'em on the road, they rubbed like crazy. Adjusted the stop a little bit, and the rubbing was completely gone. I would say it's not really any harder than setting any front mech., just a little more tedious, and time consuming.

saves a couple hundred grams and is the only true weight weenie way!!!

Think the alignment of the cage (parallel) is perhaps more important than SR and woudl agree that after some playing it can work just fine. I run Q Rings compact 50-36 with SRAM Red Ti Cage fd and a KCNC cassette which is supposed to be a real pigs breakfast of a shift combination and the shifting, although noticably slower than Capmags finest, works just fine and its not SO much slower that it like costs you anything in speed.

Make sure the front mech outer plate is perfectly parallel with the chainring itself, and adjust the height of the mech so the outer plate is exactly 2mm above the highest tooth on the ring.. will give you flawless shifting.

This is how I set mine up on both my bikes with Rotor Q-rings, and haven't had any shifting problems at all. The people who report shifting issues simply don't know how, or didn't bother to properly set up the front mech in relation to the chainring..
