#!markdown Its an aside but I run N/W rings on my single speed as I can run less chain tension (chains last longer) and it's notably quieter thanks to the chain retention. It does put a limit on gearing options (no odd numbered teeth rings) but I highly recommend it. Actually chain retention is such that it's possible to run an Oval ring with no additional tensioner if it's N/W. In this case, being that N/W rings all seem to work similarly well, the point was to put the 1XR through hell and see how it faired against its reputation for interminability. Sometimes you just want to watch the world burn? Thanks for reading!
