On a double chainset should the ring be fitted to the inner or outer position?
Of course!:) you can use clutch or non clutch.
Clutch is better as you have less chain slap overall, but with non clutch mech it will work as well good.
Reason i was saying all the time that it works with non clutch is because most people still use non cluch rear mech in CX. Clutch mech is a lot better of course but if you don't have one then it's ok as well as it will work.
Photos of Mical's bike are on full Sram Red Grouppo but she used on the same race 2 other bikes and one was equipped with x-0 clutch mech.
If you have space in the frame, mount it on inner position as it is better one. But if such position will rub on chainstays, you will have to move to outer. This heavily depends on the frame and how many spacers you have under bb. In general inner position is a bit better, as chainline is better.
I would like to sell them, so if you guys are interested let me know otherwise I'll use them for training only. For now they are just collecting dust in my garage. They are both red.
I am always happy to help when something is not working, but i need to have some information from the client to help him solve the problem.
We have Mical Dyck (No 1 in CX in Canada), Marek Konwa (National CX chamipon) running these rings all the time with no issues, along with lots of customers by now around the globe. If they would not work Mical or Marek would not be riding them in the races.
Some Morvelo members from UK also use them.
To not to look like only AB customers have sometimes problems with the setup below is what Wolf tooth writes on their web:
"Note on mud: wide/narrow chainrings do no work well in heavy mud (Wolf Tooth or any other brand) if you plan to ride in very muddy conditions, we recommend a chainguide or chainkeeper and clutch-type rear derailleur! Without these precautions, you may experience chaindrops and/or chainsuck."
Like we wrote on our site as well, in very bad conditions chainkeepr may be needed. To avoid it, it is really necessary to have your parts dialed up correctly. That's why professional racers have such a good success.
If there are lots of chain drops it means something is set up incorrectly and we are here to help our customers solve it.
www.kinesismorvelo.com I'll get a review of them the rings up there soon
Worth a read in my opinion
It was my ongoing commitment to deliver you best possible product in best possible price. The more we sell the lower we can go. This is this moment where I can safely say that we received a great deal of attention and customer satisfaction from our products.
So now I would like to give something back to you.
check for new prices here:
Interested to know how the new 11 speed long cage mech would work? Also do the new 11 speed mechs have the 2 spring tension settings?
Why can't shimano release an 11 speed clutch mech for cyclocross?!? they've already proven it in the mtb world
