It's one of the nicest XT chainsets they've made in a while and would even make do if I were to use it for single speed.
Two chainrings has always made sense to me, The smaller 'granny' ring is just two small in my mind to be of any real practical use and I find a 42t chainring just too big. This sits well on either side of those two sizes for something that is much more usable.
This also comes in black option. Got to say the whole 2012 XT range looks very well designed, and I was pushed to narrow it down to one piece, I want, I want, I want it all! I've run XT on my Kinesis for the last few years and its been brilliant stuff. (apart from the dire shimano chains give me sram any day) But after all these years its started to complain. The front mech gets a bit stiff and the rear mech isn't always reliable unless I lube it to death.
Its time to get saving!!!!
