Worlds Fastest Shifting Chainrings! That’s a bold claim! With some cool technology and a lot of racing experience to back it up. Have a look at the business side (shifting side) of the chainrings in the pictures on this page, and note the special ramps. Those are not little bumps . . . Not single-point-of-contact […]
Submitted by Harry Seaward via Facebook April 28, 2013 via mobile Few things are as hard on components and prone to shifting issues as tandems. We’ve been running your 3×9 chainrings, for several months now, and our drivetrain has never worked better. Thanks for a great product.

A ‘Cross Racer and Media Technical Reviewer from the Chicago area took a wack at the WickWerks 44/34t chainrings to see what they’d do. His article details are, as he says appealing to the “most geeky of bike geeks” as he goes into lots of detail about his bike set-up and challenges with associated components […]
Submitted by tohatchi a Cross Country Rider from Orem, UT, USA Bottom Line: Fantastic products, fantastic company. Chris Wicks owns it and runs the show. He takes care of his customers. If you’re tired of poor shifting through your front chain rings then this will fix it.
Submitted by Cap’um a Cross Country Rider from Boston area, MA Bottom Line: I haven’t ridden these chainrings for very long, but I wanted to write a review while the memory of my old rings is still somewhat fresh. These chainrings are absolutely brilliant! (no, I’m not British, just hear me out…).
