Most Helpful Customer Reviews
56T chainrings are fairly hard to find. When you do, they usually fall into one of two categories: Plain, non-ramped with questionable performance or expensive. This one is reasonably priced and, more importantly, works great. Fit is flawless and I get quick, precise shifts into this ring. If you are changing from a 52T or 53T ring, be aware that you will probably need to move your front derailler up a few millimeters.
Update: After six months of hard use, the chainring is holding up fine. I do most of my riding in the big ring and this one is not showing any wear problems.
If you like a high top end. This will help you get there. I ride 11-23 rear cassette. I always had a 53-39. I still do on one bike. But I changed to a 44-56. Both Rocket chainrings made in the U.S.A. Good price. I love the increased speed I can get on the flat or slightly downhill. Uphill if its steep I drop down one gear and it's about the same as with a 53-39. I will never go back. I have two chain ring sets that are new on my other bike so I'll just ride them till they're worn out. Which will be a while as I only ride for excercise three times per week for 25 minutes. Great value. And its made in the U.S.A. which is very important. I love these chainrings.
Simple and attractive in appearance, finely machined, this 56 tooth "big wheel" of a chain ring performs perfectly. Besides delivering just what I needed from it (a 3 MPH boost in the higher gear ratios), it actually weighed 10 grams less than the 52 tooth wheel it replaced. No need to waste your time here: well made, durable, good-looking, and a precise out of the box fit with my crankset, all at a fair price. Nuff said!
