Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The ring feels really awkward for the first 15 minutes of the first ride, but then you adapt and power up climbs. I rode this at the Breck Epic and it felt really smooth on the super steep climbs. Not sure it makes a difference on the flats as much as the climbs.
