I wanted to give you an update on the Wolf Tooth Components chain ring. As you can see I went with a 32t chain ring in hopes that this will be enough for climbing and for speed.
As far as climbing goes, it’s a bit tougher since I don’t have a granny gear to go on. I haven’t had to walk up a hill and I’m expecting to get more accustomed to it and get stronger at the same time. But one of my favorite things so far with the Wolf Tooth is that it hasn’t dropped yet. Yes it’s absolutely true. I’ve taken it through some technical terrain where it was pretty bumpy all the way down. Just to mix things up, I’d pedal and shift at the same time to see if I can get the chain to jump off the ring. To my surprise, it hasn’t fallen off. I’ve had close to 80 miles on this chain ring and in all those miles, it continues to stay put. I’ll post a final review after I put in a few hundred more miles on it.
