    MRP Announces Sram Direct Mount Chain Rings (Spiderless) w/ Chainline off-set!

    YES! No more waiting forever and dealing with Homebrewed components crappy customer service! MRP announced the other day via Facebook they are releasing direct mount Sram chain rings with a chainline offset so they work well with chain guides in 1x applications.

    Here is the quote "STILL HOT FROM MACHINES! Our chainguide-friendly 28, 30, and 32t direct-mount chainrings for SRAM cranks are ready for final finish work! Available mid-April! 28t pictured."

    they also said bigger rings (34,36, etc) will be available by summer.

    cant wait to order a 32T and maybe a 30T for mountain climbs...

    Looking forward to trying these. Waiting to get one as soon as they are available. Already have my Micro guide on its way from MRP.

    I want one now. I still like the looks of the HBC one better, but 3-4 months is too long to wait!

    the chain line off-set is also a big deal.. I have a HBC ring and the ring is way to far over.

    What do you mean by "way too far over?" What is the chainline for the HBC spiderless ring on a Sram crank? MRP says they are making the offset better for chainguides. What is the offset and final chainline?

    on the HBC ring, it is flush against the crank making it even farther over than a third ring on a triple setup. the MRP is offset to make it lineup like a middle ring on a triple, which makes the chain run much straighter.

    "MRP : ‎Art, we'll post it up here as soon as we're comfortable taking orders. Should be early April, the ship-date target is immediately following the Sea Otter Classic - so, Monday April 23."

    Thanks. I remember seeing this, but now early April is on its way out, so I was hoping for a more recent update. As we all know "target dates" are, well, "target dates".

    I'm impatient because I want to order ahead of availability because demand often outstrips supply on these first run items.

    According to my LBS, MRP's Micro (28-32T) is already available. I just had them order me one. I'll be getting this in anticipation of their spiderless rings.

    I've been running an HBC set-up 1x10 (without a guide) for some time now without too much issue. Because of the lack of inboard offsetting, I do find that the chain will drop down the cassette while backpedaling most times. Not too bad though. And i love the machining on the HBC rings. Great stuff! I'm just hoping that the MRP set-up will just make things all nice and tidy and allow the use of a proper guide.

    All they say is chainguide friendly. I don't see anything about them being offset to maintain chainline? I'm assuming the rings are going to be dished toward the middle ring? What am I not seeing here?

    Thanks

    Quote from the MRP FaceBook page - "Exactly Jim! Our ring is offset inboard, giving you the same chain-line as a chainring mounted in the middle position of a triple crank."

    Ahhh great news! And I was just sitting there in bike room "the situation room" wondering how the hell my Bontrager Carbon Spiderless crank was going to run a good chainline with my HBC 30T

    I asked if they'll have anodized gold...I'll post back later when they respond!

    From Technical Service Rep:

    The direct mount rings are made for a 51mm chain line, so it is the optimum for chain guides. There will be a 28, 30 and 32 to start. No color options only a gun metal grey anno.

    So this micro G2 SL is rated 28t-32t? How much was it? How did you order it?

    Any updates on availability? You would think that MRP's website would at least have a teaser but other than MTBR I can't seem to come with any info on the new rings

    Can you order direct from them or will we have to wait longer to actually order?

    I had my LBS order one directly from MRP.

    And I also sent an email recently to MRP and was told May availability for the spiderless chainrings as well.
