Hey Guys,

Just ordered my stronglight pulsions, going to replace the heavy stock steel chainring bolts, but wondering if there are any good chainrings out there that are lighter then the stock ones?

Standard ones weigh 126g for the set (thanks zoey) 53t and 39t. Pretty light, but can I do better?

Thanks

Fibre-Lyte
52T claimed 42g
39T claimed 21g

http://www.fibre-lyte.co.uk/index.html

A 52T fibre lyte ring is on the ww's listings as actual 57g.
taking that same difference between "claimed" and "actual" with the 39T, you get a 52T and 39T together for 85g.

What I dont have is feedback on finish and durability and shifting quality.

and being carbon fibre you may want to use for "race-only"

I have a brand new set of the TA Hegoa and they are 146 for 39x53. The stronglight are lighter @126.

So are the Stronglight the lightest in alloy? How hard are they to get? What I mean is if they are really hard to get then I'll go for something else. I can get the TA pretty easy. And I would be looking for 50T-42T

9 or 10 speed does not matter. Actually the Stronglight are stamped 9/10 speed. Look at the picture above.

i have some TA Specialite rings that i shaved with a aluminium cutter. it only takes a couple of minutes and the weights are dramatically lower:
38t: 25g
51t: 68g
total: 93g for the set. if i remember right it saved me over 40g total. no issues with durability at all.

I was thinking of doing the same thing. I'm a carpenter so I have a couple of routers that could do the job. I was thinking of making a template to guide it though.
If I do the router thing I want to start out with some good rings. No sense in spending a bunch of time on junk.
Is the alloy of the TA rings good and hard?
Which TA rings?
I've seen the TA rings offered at Gypzybikz.
I need a 50T and 42T and it is hard to find them in my sizes.

Cool tip Nino, thanks. Just wondering, what kind of tool is an aluminum cutter? Got a link to a pic or something?

Thanks!

The Stronglight starting out are 20g lighter. Superlite I nominate you to modify a set. :twinkle:

Breakout the drill press! :twisted:
