    Homebrewed ring direct mount on xo crank?

    Anyone pulled the spider off of an XO crank and did a direct mount of a Homebrewed Component ring?

    Thanks.

    I added a spiderless ring to my Bontrager cranks that (according to Dan) uses the same spider as the Truvativ cranks. A well done ring. Keep in mind that it is flat, not dished like the spider. I've only had one really good ride and it disappeared - in a good way. No problems. Very smooth. Never thought about the fact that it was a new ring until the ride was over. Pictures here:

    p.s. If your spider is a double ring set up and you want to get rid of it shoot me a PM.

    I just mounted one up to an X9 crank and have about 3 hours of riding on it with a 1x10 setup. 10 speed chain was just ever so slightly tight when i first had it on but has broken in nicely. no complaints flawless operation so far. the swap is really easy too, all you need is a T25 torx.
