A. Removal of all Rotor chainsets is fast and easy here is a link to a video to help guide you.


Q. What OCP position should I start in?

A. When fitting a Q-Ring to your cranks we recommend initial setup on OCP#3 as this is the most commonly used position for road cycling, for time trials and triathlon’s we recommend ocp#4,


Q. What crank length should I choose?

A. We recommend you stick with whatever length crank you are currently using, if you feel that your current length crank isn’t right for you then we recommend you see a professional bike fitter.


Q. Will I need a longer chain?

A. No, if you are replacing your current round chainring with a Q-ring of equate tooth count, a longer chain is not needed. If you are increasing in gear size a longer chain will be required.


Q. Can I use my current front derailleur?

A. Yes, Q rings will work with front derailleurs from any manufacturer, a slight position adjustment may be required though.


Q. I have electric gears; will a Q-Ring work on my bike?

A. Yes, in fact we find shifting works extremely well on electronic front derailleurs as the shift is kept entirely consistent.


Q. What chain do you recommend?

A. We always recommend the use of a quality chain from any 3rd party chain manufacturer, rather than the use of “OEM” chains (shimano, sram, campagnolo) Very good chains can be bought from manufacturers such as YBN, KMC or Connex- We have tested these chains and found that shifting is much improved over a standard groupset chain.


Q. I have a Rotor Power meter, Should I still be using my additional Speed/cadence sensor?

A. No, The Rotor Power should not be used with an additional speed/cadence sensor as this can interfere with the readings to the head unit.
