    XX1 Chainring weight vs. North Shore Billet & Others

    I'm wondering how the weight of the XX1 chainring compares to North Shore Billet's and whomever else is making them? Has anyone weighed the XX1 chainring? I would think that a one-piece without the extra hardware and without the larger teeth would be a bit lighter.

    I've not got either to weigh them, but, the larger teeth are there for a reason- chain retention. Lose those and you have to add a jump stop or chain guide. After doing that the weight would probably equal out.

    The NSB rings are for a 1x10 setup rather than a replacement for an XX1 ring with the special teeth.

    Im actually using mine for a single speed build. No use for the specially designed chainring. The only two I've found are MRP Bling ring (72g for 32t) and North Shore Billet (95g for 32t). Homebrewed also makes them but doesn't list the weight. I'd imagine the MRP Bling Ring is significantly lighter than the stock XX1 spider/chainring.
