Deciding to go 1x10 is a personal choice and the major part of that is getting the size of the chainring correct. I wanted some climbing grunt given the riding I do but wasn't sure about a top-end compromise - The 30 tooth MRP Bling Ring turned out to be just right. I will go to a more toothy ring when my legs get stronger but for now this is great.
The manufacture of the Bling Ring is top-notch and it fastened very securely to my X9 crank arm. A little bit of thread-lock on the bolts should keep everything in place - no issues so far after a few punishing rides.
The Bling Ring doesn't have the alternating tooth design of the XX1 type rings available today. I'm using this with a Paul Chain Keeper and an X9 Type 2 (clutch-type) rear mech I have yet to hear the chain let alone have it slip.
All in all an excellent product at a reasonable price - It looks great too.
