Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Blackspire Cyclocross Chainrings

Doing some fact-finding before I upgrade some components this spring. Does anyone have any experience with these chainrings?
I have heard good things about other blackspire stuff but never tried any. Appreciate any comments.

Try them and let us know. I'm contemplating the Wickwerks ones myself unless I go single in front.

The Alloy chosen to machine them from.. seems fine.. 7075-t6 is the better stuff.
