    Well, there are on the new red axs chain sets.

    But now that you mention it, no one really does aftermarket 12 speed rings yet.

    But I suppose it's just a case of manufacturers catching up with what is a brand new product.

    My though is that the new red axs crankset is really expensive and ugly.

    There's going to be folk running hollowgram cranks and spidering who want to upgrade to sram 12 speed at some point.

    I'd imagine a sub compact spidering must be in the pipeline.

    Yeah fair enough it needs an xdr driver. So you could potentially just swap out the freehub if you have a compatible hub.
    Currently mavic, dt Swiss and zipp hubs are compatible. Anyone else?

    Does a sub compact spidering exist? Doesn't seem like it does.
    Couldn't find any info on whether they intend to start producing them.

    Hypothetically, if one was to buy a 12 speed sram groupset, a sub compact spidering would be cheaper and look better than the new 12 speed Red cranks.

    Yeah, 11 speed etap is great. Feel like it will be a family heirloom passed down to my son!

    In all likelihood I'll probably skip 12 speed all together. It'll be so long by the time I could spend that sort of money, 13 speed will probably have arrived.

    Like all of us, I'm just caught in the eternal upgrade cycle.

    Shit. When I read the press release about AXS I dismissed it as just more marketing blurb to sell another standard that wasn't needed. Didn't really pay it enough attention.
    Seems like its actually pretty worth while.

    Wish I hadn't read up on it now.
    When I bought hydro 11 speed etap it was a really good price and I publicly celebrated getting etap cheap.
    Felt pretty sure I wouldn't be going 12 speed for years to come...
    AXS is now coming towards what I paid for old etap.

    Now want. :(

    I asked too. It's a 56.
    Absolutely love the colour. It's shown up really well in that photo.

    Yeah I just being flippant with the 'maybe'
    I've not actually ridden a 12 speed set up yet so cant really say much about it.
    Do the 12 speed axs cassettes offer smaller jumps between each cog?

    Edit - just googled and see that it does indeed offer closer ratios. lots of 1t jumps.
    Thats something that I'd like and obviously a lot of other folk would.

    Pitty I bought 11 speed etap on sale just before axs came out

    Yeah I think sub compact chainrings is becoming the new norm. The 10t cog 12 speed cassette with the sub compact rings could give you the best of both worlds. Maybe.
