Aerozine Chain Ring Bolt Kit

We have had a few items in from Aerozine of late, and following on from them, this chain ring bolt kit comes in an anodised blue to adorn your beloved steed and give it that finishing touch.

Unlike the jockey wheels however, there seems very little actual need to replace the chainring bolts, so a purchase is purely for the two grams of weight you might save and for the fact they are blue. Let's be honest here, you're buying them because they're blue.

Simply remove the standard bolts, maybe use the moment to give the chainrings a deep clean, and refit the rings with these natty blue numbers. Bear in mind that they are aluminium so too much force and you will knack them, so go careful.

They look nice, but that's it, that's all they do. For a penny less than £9 you are paying for a little bit of 90's bling, which if you've already got the jockey wheels, skewers and the headset spacers will look pretty tasty.

Verdict

Little pieces of shiny blue aluminium, nothing to dislike about them

Over-tightening will lead to you chewing up the allen-key slot. Beware.

Rate the product for value:
 
5/10

They don't really do anything of worth, but they also don't really cost very much.

Tell us how the product performed overall when used for its designed purpose

The rings stayed on, the bolts performed flawlessly.

Tell us what you particularly liked about the product

They are blue!

Tell us what you particularly disliked about the product

Prone to chewing up if over tightened.

Did you enjoy using the product? I've spent £9 in a worse manner before.

Would you consider buying the product? Maybe on an impulse, or if i had a full set of blue bits already.

Would you recommend the product to a friend? Unlikely, unless they had a serious thing for blue.

Anything further to say about the product in conclusion?

There's nothing really wrong with them, but they don't really do anything, or even replace anything that's worn out. So really, if you're buying them, then there's nothing left to upgrade on the bike, and it's time to get out and ride some more!

Overall rating: 6/10

Maybe I could get my seamstress to 'button hole' one of my many Rapha garments and adorn the aforementioned garment with these little puppies...not like they'd weigh too much...wonder if they're available in 24k gold... Laughing
