    Not sure about the chainring. Will check when I get home.

    Seems like all the higher end rings are. I'm not sold on using alloy, but I ordered one anyway. Mine's a Blackspire something or another. Should be here tomorrow.

    Thanks guys, looks like I don't have to do a lot of research on drive train parts!

    is that sarcasm?

    I am too lazy to go back and look, but did you ask a question about drive train parts that we ignored?

    No I didn't, I'm just going to order what you guys got and I was just thanking you!

    I remember you asked about a cassette a while back. What else do you need?

    Chainrings, chain, maybe cables. You think a rear derailleur is needed after 2 years and about 1000 miles on it?

    If it has been 1000 miles I would do a big overhaul. Your very lucky, none of my stuff even comes close to lasting that long

    New cassette
    New chain rings
    New chain
    New rear der
    New cables AND housing.
    Maybe even replace the BB

    I would also change your brake pads & rotors. Drain and bleed the hydro lines if you have never done so. I would also spend a little extra $$ and get an XT or X9 (depending on your shifters) rear der as they perform much better than SLX and X7. Seeing how I go through at least (2) rear der’s per season I always get X7 as I can’t justify spending extra on something I know will break soon. But you are much gentler on your bike than I am.
