I like the mud-relief scalloping on the Blackspire. I don’t think it’ll actually make any difference tbh but it’s a really nice detail. Also I think they dispense with the need for half of the chainring bolts so could be lighter.
But mine is Works- UK made and the first of the 10-speed rings.
I’ve had a RF one for 2 rides now and no sign of it dropping the chain yet. First ride was a mix of conditions, pretty mucky but lots of natural loamy trails in the woods with loads of rocks, roots and steps and stuff. Second ride was Gisburn and its a success if there aren’t any dropped chains on the rocky, blown up, flow sapping trails there*.
Very impressed to be honest. I can understand the logic of narrow/wide stuff but was very sceptical. Whats not to like about it!
* not all the trails there, just the stuff from the top of the Hope line all the way back around to the middle of the 8!
My Works one is coming up to 8 months old now – will be replacing it now the winter seems to be out..
I follow Works on Facebook and It looks like they have a £30 one on the way – spot on, why faff with hard ano etc when this is £15 cheaper… plus my last works one is arguably still fine after 8 months of riding in slop.
