    New question here. different brands of spiderless rings?

    Hey,
    I have an XX1 crankset which I want to setup as an SS (went for XX1 so if I would decide to go geared after all I can go 1x11 without chainguide).
    I could use the expensive and certainly nice looking XX1 chainring, but I was thinking of saving that one for when I would go geared and instead buying an MRP Bling Ring. Unfortunately the bling ring seems hard to come by in Europe, the only online shop I could find (evanscycles) has been out of stock for months (32t).
    Are there any other brands out there that are easier to find online? I also looked for North Shore Billet, but again, seems US only.

    Who? MRP or NSB? Can you buy directly from them?
    I'd prefer to buy in Europe to keep the shipping costs down.

    not sure, I've not looked at them to closely. Still saving up for a crankset first.

    Carbon-Ti makes one. a bit pricey, but should last longer.

    Do us a favor and follow up after you have mounted them. Fit on the crank and roundness. Thnx.

    Absolute Black, "Designed in UK. Manufactured in Poland (EU)."
    Not bad, I don't like the look though.

    I really like the look when I got mine and saw it in person. I like it better than the Carbon-Ti I just pulled off.

    Looks nice in combination with your frame, I agree

    I just mounted it, there is definitely more play when put unto the crank without tightening the bolts, compared to the original xx1 ring. The xx1 ring almost doesn't move without the bolts, the Wolftooth is able to wiggle a bit. After tightening the bolts however all play is gone. That's all I can say so far.
