    Breaking Chainrings of any kind?

    Hi there, I have broken the number 8, 11, 12, and 14 on 5 different cogs in the past two years, all SRAM. I ride thirty miles round trip to and from work. As well as up a two mile climb, two to five nights a week, and have huge legs from being vegan. The climb averages about 45degree-52degree rise. Anyone have experience with such a matter? I know Durianrider has had the same issue and has made some changes.

    The number 8, 11, 12 and 14? Referring to what?

    And no, you are not riding up a 45 degree climb.
