Fellow WWs,

Thinking about picking up a set at the LBS for the spare bike, the price is good but are they trash? Does anyone have any time on these rings? I'm riding the Zircals and I've ridden the CT2s but have no clue about these.

I've used a 50 tooth one. They're nice and cheap, feel stiff enough for me and shift ok but the finish isn't very good at all.
For if life, in the desire for which our essence and existence consists, possessed in itself a positive value and real content, there would be no such thing as boredom: mere existence would fufill and satisfy us.

The silver. If you want a better finish and superior shifting try the Specialites Alize/Vento, they're available in different colours too.
