I am upgrading my road bike by adding a powermeter and upgrading to the new Dura Ace R9150. With the new power meter (either Quarq DZero or Rotor 2INPower), I have the opportunity to change my chain rings. My understanding is that Rotor is not compatible with 4 bolt chain rings while Quarq can do 4 or 5 bolt. I want to keep it as a full compact 50x34. Does anybody have any recommendations for chain rings that are optimal for either power meter? I would like to minimize the weight gain of my upgrades, but not sacrifice shifting performance.
Thanks!

Brian

If you go Rotor Q rings then you will lose some shifting performance. I've got mine setup nicely right now (finally) but I'm sure I'll still get the occasional dropped chain. Rotor No Q shifts fine though.

If you want really nice shifting and super stylish stealth looks then maybe Quark Dzero with SRAM Red eTap graphics rings (missus had them for a while - looked class, shifted beautifully).

But that's SRAM/Shimano, you'd maybe not be into that.

Why not go for the Dura Ace power meter and rings? Too pricey?

You could also go with the Quarq DFour and stick with DA rings, which is what I just did. Image
