- Middleburn crank arm users…
…show me your pictures. Got to choose a spider colour to go with silver RS8 arms and black single ring. Is silver the best for long life looks or black or even coloured for that purty look?
Anyone using middleburns with 4-arm spider as a singlespeed chainset? do the inner ring holes look OK when not in use? Or do you use the FR spider?Posted 9 years ago
I already have 36T black chainrings so OK on that front.
As it happens just back from my LBS who had a set of RS7s s/h for sale for £75 in mint condition. They came with 5 arm spider and brand spanking new 46/36/24 chainrings which Ill sell on since I dont need them – but they’ll probably fetch a fair bit towards that £75. Dont mind not getting RS8s when Ive got a bargin instead. Now just to get the dual spider from CRCPosted 9 years ago
1x9s look a bit odd too – I used to have a commuter made up like that.
Before I went Rohloff I ran 36/22 34:11 with a bash taking up third spot. Looks nice and the ratio spread is plenty for nearly all riding as the extra width of a 34 rear sprocket and a 36 front chainring covers over 85% of a 26″ normal 27spd range.

I’d like all my riding possible on the one front CR is poss (which I suppose I do with the 32t Uno). When the front drops below a single 32 though it does start to look a little strange, esp on an XL 29rPosted 9 years ago
Here’s the 32t which looks clean and simple as well as being light and efficient

Im using the Middleburn 4 arm spider on my silver RS7’s. I could never get more than 3-4 months out of the Uno soft alloy ring, and so Im happy with the stainless On-One chainring.
Your gripe is the only ‘bad’ experience I’ve heard anyone say about Middleburn kit. Otherwise it’s been universally positive.
What application were you using your Uno in, and from your response above it sounds like they were not the hardcoat type chainring?
My hardcoat Uno chainring is still going strong into its second year, with now two winter seasonsPosted 9 years agogeetee1972Member
Hey Boner can we please see the rest of the Indy Fabrications? Always loved those frames. I once saw, in the flesh, a titanium IF. I thought they only existed in folklore and mythology, but they really do exist.
Wasn’t IF set up by the guys from Fat City Cycles after it closed down?Posted 9 years ago
