    Ha, this bargain again…they did this about this time last year, cheaper than buying a set of replacement chainrings. Got 2 in the shed!

    Can’t make up their bloody mind on the price though. Second time it’s dropped in price since I bought one for £17 2 weeks ago.

    Can the rings be removed on this?

    Yeah I got some last time they was on offer and it saved me some cash when my chainrings were needing replacement.

    Only thing was the granny ring wouldn’t fit over my Hope BB when the lad at the LBS tried fitting them.

    Looks the same as the alvio crank that came on my hardtail.
    Never had any problems with it, shifts beautifully .

    Recently swapped the big ring for a bash (£22 halfords),and the middle ring for a 36t deore ring (£10 CRC).
    Jobs a good’un.

    Works just as well as my xt, just probably heavier.

    Will this fit a hollow tech bb.
    Apologies for un educated question.

    Thx

    No, it’s a square taper. It won’t fit any hollow tech BB.

    Tell him he needs an angle grinder. 5 mins later, it’ll fit. I promise. 🙂

    Does anyone know if the outer and middle rings would fit on a slx crankset (m660) without filing the tabs? Don’t need the small ring as it’s for the commuter but not sure from comments above if all rings would need filing to make them fit. Thanks.
