These things rock. I’m no technical bike guy, just a rider who puts 5000-8000 miles a year on a variety of road bikes. These chain rings shift quicker than anything else I have. That means various Dura Ace, Ultegra, and Campagnolo setups as I rotate through around 8 different bikes.
These are mounted on a LeMond Tourmelet built up with a mix of Dura Ace and Ultegra components. The FD is Dura Ace. The coolest part is when shifting from the smallest to largest chain ring. Before I even finish pushing the shifter lever over the chain rings have completed the shift to the large chain ring. It is really quick and very noticeable especially when I use this one after a day or two on a different bike. The 34 helps this old man still climb the mountains and the 53 lets me get more speed built up on the downhills before I have to tuck and let the aerodynamics take over. I love going fast downhill! I recommend these with no reservations.
I am a WickWerks customer.
