Raceface Narrow Wide on Fat

RaceFace 30T in blue

I am really impressed with the 1x chainrings.  There is a lot of machining involved compared to a typical chainring.  Looking at the picture above you can notice the threaded chainring bolt holes and the slotted teeth that form the "narrow wide" design.  

I am a big fan of 1x drive trains for bikes that spend most of their time in the dirt.  

- less weight
- cleaner look 
-fewer parts to break/adjust/wear out

I had the fat bike out for an hour yesterday, and everything was working correctly.
