Hey

Must I swap my SG-X chainrings with SG-X replacements or can I use anything with the same BCD?

My current Deore LX FC-M560 has 26-36-46 rings and I was thinking of replacing them with TA rings. However, I've read I must use SG-X and rings that come as a matched set due to the pickup being matched to the rings. Is this correct?

Anyone used non SG-X rings and had issues?

I replaced my original worn Shimano Deore Biopace chainrings with standard ones, I had no issues and didn't really notice any difference in shifting: https://www.spacycles.co.uk/m2b0s210p0/ ... nrings-Spa

Std ones work just fine unless you're in the pro peloton

Go for Stronglight Zicral or TA and you will find they last about 5x longer than the Shimano ones.
