    Anyone runnin' Rocket brand rings???

    Runnin' dual rings 22t & changed to 34t from 32t.
    Don't seem to be any probs w/chain length...anything else to worry about?? Truvativ Holzfeller crank, according to my LBS, Truvativ doesn't offer a pinned & ramped 34 tooth ring, so I bought a "Rocket" brand ring. It has pins & "the molded or stamped" ramps that most other decent rings have. Seems to shift ok so far. Those extra 2 teeth do make a difference. I was hopin' to have a lil' more pedal when I go dh. Can't wait to get it on the mtn. I'm probably worryin' about nuthin'...jus' wonderin' out load.
    Thanks for any pointers & info.

    Shouldn't be a prob...

    I've used a 22/38 combo on Truvativs before, shifted fine maybe a bit slower on the uptake compared to a smaller combo. I'm going to be swapping to a 22/36.

    Guess I'm gonna have to shift a lil' sooner than before.

    One bad shift and this ring is history..

    Rocket rings are cheap for a reason, they're junk!!! Gonna hafta go by th' LBS and whine & hope they'll pity me, & cut me a lil' slack on the price of a decent ring. Dang near cut this one into. Hope it didn't trash my crank.

    Race Face to Replace the damaged ring

    Beefier than the Rocket ring. Should've cowboy'd-up & got th' Race Face 1st, it would've saved me about $22. Live & Learn...IF your payin' attention.
