Review 1 for Shimano 105 FC-5700 Double Chainring
very light, good replacement for a 42 tooth
PostedJune 24, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
Bought this to replace a very well worn 42 tooth inner chainring on my racer. Decided to go for a 39 tooth instead of a straight swap 42 for 42, which i'm very much glad i've done, i live in wales so it's basicly mountains in every direction, so the 39 tooth has made a fairly big difference. Also much lighter than my old chainring, so for my racer thats another bonus. Only reason i haven't given this 5 stars is simply because i've only had this 2 weeks, but if it lasts me for even half the length of time my old one did, i'd be very happy. Also i'm now running a 52-39 instead of a 52-42 ratio up front, the new ratio is much better, i've still got top end, hills are now easier with the 39, and there's less of what i consider as waisted crossover gears in between.
