Losing the Front Derailleur: The Wolf Tooth Bit My Indy Fab
Independent Fabrication and a Wolf Tooth

At this point in the MTB game, probably one of the greatest inventions in the past few years has been the narrow wide chainring. Sure, there was a patent from a century ago, that called out a similar design but at a much larger scale but it was SRAM who first applied that technology to the cycling industry.

Later, companies like Wolf Tooth and Race Face adopted the narrow wide ring design, making it applicable to a wider platform. Basically, any system can use this ring design and work.

Factory 5: Lattice Chainring Now Available
Factory_5_Lattice

The guys at Factory 5 in Shanghai just launched their newest product, the Lattice chainring:

“The Lattice Chainring is one of our proudest moments in F5 history. We went back to the drawing board with this one and came up with something technically innovative and intrinsically beautiful. In other words, it’s freaking light and euphemistically gorgeous.

Precision CNC milled from a single piece of 7075 aluminum, the dual-plane cutouts maintain strength whilst reducing the chainring’s weight to a mere 78g. We’ve radially brushed the ring and had them deep anodized to give the industrial feel we strive for at F5… and the result is something we’re chuffed to say is made in China.

It comes in 144BCD, Black, Slate and Silver, 47, 48 and 49T.”‘

I’m stoked on these! Pick one up here!

Wolf Tooth Components: Made in the USA – 30t Single Ring Precision

One of the reasons why I’m going XX1 on my new Rosko mountain bike is the simplicity of running a single ring up front. When you lose the front derailleur, it lightens the bike up, while freeing up your trigger location for a dropper post or front fork control. XX1 runs a 32 or 34 up front and up to a 42t cog in the back, which is an incredibly wide range.

But what if I want to run a single ring up front with my XT setup? Before, you’d have to have a chain keep, which isn’t an issue, but it certainly doesn’t look as sharp without anything holding your chain to the ring. One of the first things I noticed on Tim’s Yeti SB95c that I rode was the Wolf Tooth Components 30t 104BCD ring.
