    Direct Mount Chainring vs Race Face Cinch

    Do all chain rings that say 'direct mount' fit the race face cinch cranks or must I buy one that specifically says it's for the cinch system?

    Must be RF specific.
    Don’t modify the trail to match your skills, modify your skills to match the trails.

    There are plenty of direct mount (no spider required) chainrings for SRAM, Cannondale, e.13, Specialized, Middleburn, etc.

    Meaning, yes, you need a RF-specific ring.

    Honourable mention to Shimano now that they’ve made direct mount as well as with XTR 12spd!

    Rotor makes direct mount as well. Can use their Q-Ring oval to actually alter angle of the oval. Ran that till I got set of RaceFace Ride cranks
