Never knew this but Matt kindly let me in on the fact that my x0 crankset has a removable spider. I only thought a couple of cranks could remove their spider but SRAM has kindly built this feature into their new line up of cranks. Why is this important?
Well it takes the chore out of buying 2x or 3x dedicated cranksets. I purchased my crankset with a 3x setup because 104bcd is the one required to run 32t chainrings on it for a 1x setup. If i however wanted to go with a 2x crankset i’d have to repurchase another dedicated crankset with different bcd. Not anymore. All i have to do is purchase one of these and 2x here i come.
Or for ss’ers you can even choose to go for bmx type spiderless chainrings for reliability.
