Good value
by Peter B on 12/11/2015

This chainset is clearly at the bottom end of the Shimano range but appears to be perfectly adequate and offers good value for money.

Although the Shimano A070 chainset is in the less lucrative end of the market it is still fit for purpose. It's functional and acceptably well made for its price range.
