Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Expensive
Difficult to buy the right rings 44/32/22T but got there in the end for Deore LX Hollowtech 2 chainset.
Discovered that you need to remove cranks to change rings. This proved a doddle with the removal tool FCM960 and an allen key. Remove LH crank first, then draw out chainring crank with spindle. Change all rings, being careful of orientation and wrong instruction on packs re large ring markings direction. Can't understand why they don't make alloy rings for mountain bikes, they used to last forever on my road bike in the 60's/70's compared to about 1500 miles for these now. Similar comments apply to the poor durability of MB chains (500 miles) and sprocket sets (1500 miles) today.
