Oh.... You mean the chainrings?
Never had any probs with them once I fitted Pace rings instead
Only icky bits I remember from DX were
Cheap band-on fitting for thumbshifters (mechanically the canine's sphericals though)
Cheap pressed chainrings (XT weren't much better - we all used Pace rings in my neck of the woods - the Dark Peak)
Bottom brackets (pre-cartridge)
Otherwise DX was up there with M730-5 XT, which some of us on here (self included) regard as the best MTB kit ever made within context of course.
Modern kit is easier to use, works well most of the time, and means you can do more with your bike. But when it breaks down, youre in trouble.
