Alternative XX1 chainrings?
Seems I can destroy the XX1 chainring pretty fast. After a season I'm into the grinding and slipping phase. The grinding wasn't so bad if I was riding by myself, put in the earbuds and turn the music higher. But the slipping on the climbs sucks. So before I buy another Sram ring, is there a better (durable) ring? I saw some Wolf (I think that was the name) rings, but it was direct mount bypassing the spyder. Why on earth would you want to make swapping your ring harder lol? Ideas?
Crank comes off easily. Takes less than five minutes if you're speedy. I do have the Wolftooth. I can't comment on durability because my drive train is new. I have read regardless of the manufacturer, the smaller rings wear faster but hopefully I won't have that problem. I replace my rings once a year and over ten years ago i had to do it twice a year so I think durability has improved.

The raceface rings can be run both ways so that adds a little life to them.
Want to buy:
