    Can anyone recommend the Blackspire Mono Veloce Chainring?

    I ran a search on the Blackspire Mono Veloce Chainring but wasn't able to turn up much. Anyone running them? How do you like it? Any issues? I'm thinking the 104BCD 4-ARM, 32T, No Ramps.



    Thanks in advance.

    Have had a few and have had no problems...wear about the same rate as any aluminum ring, a little faster once you wear the fancy coating off. I usually get them becuase they can be had cheap and have consisent quality.

    That is a cut and polished XTR (older version)

    M960 XTR, like boomn said, cut and polished, but also a reasonable amount of reshaping around the 4 arms.
    Just an update on the Mono Veloce. it now has 17 months of use and still no issues. the black coating has worn off around the teeth, so i will be watching it more closely for accelerated wear.

    I run mine in a 1x9 setup. I put a good 2000 miles on it before it was time to replace it with another. Due to the whacky chain lines you can get when running a 1x9 it probably wore out faster than usual. With a properly set up single speed I'm assuming it would last a bit longer.

    Probably too late, but my $0.02

    Just pulled my 32T Blackspire off my 1x9 after a year and a half (~1500 miles all off road) and apart from the dirt it looks pretty much new. There's almost no wear at all on it. No finning, to side-wear, nothing. I'm impressed.

    I only pulled it off because I'm replacing it with a 34T. I'm going to try the e13 guidering because I got a deal on it and it's red, but a part of me is wondering if I should just go with the Blackspire again.

    Thats what I run; a 32T non-ramped 5-bolt (94mm) - so far so good. Its a chainring, not much to screw up. Its aluminum so it will wear out eventually.

    I swear by the Mono Veloce. Awesome rings for the SS.
