xt chain rings
#1
Cleaning the bike today I noticed the middle chain ring (xt m752) had a tooth missing and the outer chain rings teeth getting worn so need replacing.
Has anyone used any of these?

Shimano original rings do seem to be expensive but are they any better?

Used a middleburn middle on my Hone chainset briefly but it wouldnt release the chain when shifting into the granny properly so went back to Shimano. Not heard of the others.

Theres a quite high chance you will need a new chain and cassette as well due to mating/wear

If the chains not too old you can get away with just changing the rings. My chain is 4 months old and done prob 6 or 700 miles and works fine with the new middle ring i got on Thursday.

I haven't use either of the suggested but have heard and read lots of good things about the Middleburn rings. I know someone who runs an XTR chainset and got them to avoid the £300 cost of buying new XTR's and he can't tell any difference, so must be good.

Sold it as it was quite a while ago. Last time I had to replace the middle ring the BB was on its way out as well so I just bought a new chainset as it wasnt much more although that was pre price hikes!
