Thanks for the links. Looks not too bad. To me, Quarq Dfour91 with 9100 rings scores higher for visuals, though. Otherwise, would prefer p2m meter.

Agreed, plus the quarq is a known quantity with great service. I think this looks pretty good.

Doesn't match up quite as cleanly as the Quarq, but its much less noticeable without a flash because the rings look darker(phone camera issues).

I ended up getting the 5-hole + praxis... I wanted to move back to a 50/34 vs 52/36 (lots of steep climbs here) plus I thought that, while the R9100 + p2m look good, the ultegra looks kinda off because of the dark grayish that the rings are...

I just wonder how waterproof the rubber flap on the NG Eco will be.

How's the praxis rings on your p2m? any dropped chains?

should be fine, the internals are waterproofed as well. but you'd rather have that cap on...

Advantage of 4-hole Shimano is that you can run any of their chainrings (50-34, 52-36, 53-39 or even bigger), because they all share the 110mm bolt diameter, unlike most competitor's rings.

Plus you can choose top of the line DA rings or more financially accessible Ultegra 6800 or 8000.

P2M has an "how-to" install video on YouTube showing the set up with Ultegra 8000 rings. Very easy to find.

Quarq looks sweet, too bad they don't make 180mm cranks.

I know that it was a year ago, but do you have the weight for the cranks + PM and chainrings?

I don't, but I will try to get it next time I pull them. I'm likely going to swap them over to a Tarmac, waiting for the disc to come out to decide between that and the rim brake model.
