I combined it with ordinary 9speed setup, without front derailleur and not chain tensioner. At first it felt unreal, and I was suspicious it wont go well at first ride. BUT it performed great. Not a single chain fall or hiccup. I havent tried any branded NW ring, but I dont see how it could be any better. Thank you Superstar!
Ordered my custom wheelset on Monday...delivered to my house Wednesday about 12, well what more can you ask?:) Back to the wheels than, exactly as I wanted them to be, red Switch Ultra hubs with red nipples on Mavic XC821 looks very nice, as always proper spoke tension, no scratches ect.
Perfect service from Superstars
