Also, in general: I thought this would be a possibly interesting flip on
testing a chainring versus "here's a N/W ring, it holds the chain on good" but
I also run a Renthal 1XR on my 1×9 gravel bike.
I use the bike to pull my toddler all over the city in a trailer, in all
weather conditions, on a bike with a 9-speed 11-34 cassette so there is a lot
of cross chaining going on under big loads on steep climbs with two full
growlers and a Kryptonite NY chain lock.
I'm running a 10-spd chain. I also do ~ zero maintenance as its a 9spd
friction system and cleaning road grime off a drivetrain is an unending
I've never dropped a chain even bouncing along fire roads, punching up curbs,
or during the odd crash (which you'd expect given all the people riding off-
road with no secondary retention).
The ring is holding up amazingly well. Boringly, never think about it well.
But that sort of fits with every N/W review.
