Rated 4 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Update on the previous review. Apparently my problems resulted from using the middle ring of a triple ring crankset. Chainrings specifically designed for single ring use are thicker and have less offset, which will reduce the gap. Also, a single speed ring holds the chain considerably better. After switching to blackspire's mono veloce ring I have no complaint on this item's performance whatsoever. 28 October 2008
Rated 2 out of 5 by Be aware, that replacing the granny with this, will leave a considerable gap between it and the middle ring. The gap is wide enough for a 9-speed chain to fall into. IMO it would make more sense to utilize extra long middle/big ring bolts and adjust the gap by using spacers. Rated this item 2 for the nice idea. 13 October 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by I ride a two ring setup with 34/44 rings (never used the granny so got rid of it) and I always had issues with the chain falling off the inside (perhaps 1-2 times a ride on rough stuff). Since fitting this I have yet to loose the chain. A must for similar setups to mine where the chain falls off the inside. Basically replaces the granny ring, was the only product I could find that essentially a bash ring for the inside.. 18 June 2007
