    XTR chainring question

    Hey guys. I have XTR M960 crankset with 24 tooth small gear. I need to put a 22 tooth ring on. My question is...do I have to replace the middle ring as well?

    Seems like at the online sites, there is a middle ring for a 22 tooth, and a different ring for a 24 tooth.

    Thanks for the help.

    The only real difference in the middle ring between the one intended for 22 and 24T grannies is where the shift ramps are located, so the shifts from granny to middle might not be as crisp.

    If you've got lots of miles on the cranks you might want to consider replacing the middle ring/cassette and chain at the same time anyway.

    thanks

    Not many miles at all. Probably less than 300. I will just buy the granny for now. Think I will go with the BlackSpire.

    Thanks again
