- XX1 Alternative chainsets
I’m getting rather impatient waiting for an XX1 chainset to run on my 1×10 setup(I seem to be getting constantly fobbed off with mañana type emails from a german bike shop), so I’m looking into alternatives. The appeal of the XX1 chainset was the thick/thin ring pattern, can go to a 30t ring easily enough and was fairly light for the price. Any suggestions as to a chainset and ring? I thought I’d need to go 30t but I reckon a 32t will be fine, something of similar quality/weight and stiffness would be ideal and if a little blingy all the better. The XX1 was 189 euros so a similar price would help too.Posted 4 years agoPriddsSubscriber

Yes, if buying new. I got a good deal on a used XO chainset with worn rings on ebay, and added a 32T XX1 ring. All cost about £40 less than the bike-discount.de price.
That’s £40.00 less than a brand new chainset though, with the potential wear / damage carbon cranks can see, plus he will need to scour ebay rather than just buy new (with warranty)
Or buy a brand new XO chainset and a thick / thin ring for £35 – £60.Posted 4 years agoBlazin-saddlesMember
