Au contraire. Here is a 110/74 CT2 Type S/H MIDDLE. A middle must refer to a triple, correct? Is there a CT2 outer chainring to work with this middle, or will any ol' CT2 do? Don't ask! Here's another chainring listed as middle, the 130 Shi 2° ZICRAL. Does this have ramps to get from the inner to the middle ring, and thus can work with a 74 BCD inner chainring? No telling.

At the Stronglight site (but not XXCycle), there are triple cranksets with CT2 rings, such as the interesting looking X-WING ACTIV LINK TRIPLE (which is 146/110/74 BCD ), so CT2 triple rings must be available.

OT: While I was looking at XXCycle, I noted the SUPER RECORD™ 11s, for $580. Isn't that a terrific price? Trouble is, the year isn't listed, nor is it specified whether the spindle is titanium.

I'm still holding my breath.
I'm lusting after their Standard Clover set.
Praxis? Madcow? What's going on man!

There is retail availability of one particular type of Praxis chainring (Look ZED) at one retail outlet (Glory Cycles).

So, that is a start at least.

Hey everyone...sorry for the delay...
Thanks for the patience. I'll try and answer some of the questions I've seen in the thread.

- USA Bike Shops can order Dealer Direct with us or through BTI.
- For USA consumers now, the online store is up on the Praxis website and more combos coming.
- All ring-sets are 7075 T6 Shimano/SRAM compatible, and are Campy11 chain compatible (when on 3rd party crank like a FSA/Specialized/Cannondale crank)
- Campy 11 BCD - We will be coming out with Campy BCD ring sets this year.
- Black & Black/Silver are initial offerings, colors will be rolling out soon for Dealer Direct and Consumer direct online...
- CX ring sets coming. 48/36 and 46/36 bcd110
- OEM - Yes, there are some well known brands starting to use our rings. We're proud to say you'll see more Praxis forged ring-sets on other brand cranks soon. Keep your eyes pealed...

Thanks for your interest, questions, and comments... we're doing all we can to get these forged aftermarket rings out to the public. As we grow and launch new gear combos...we'll make more announcements.
Follow us on FB or the the Praxis site...
Thanks!

the bum didn't show ME the carbon crank! I got a few pics of the now defunct alu crank that'll be posted up on FB soon. the rings are the same and the general shape of the non driveside arm is the same, i can imagine some similarities on the driveside, i'm kind of curious. He mentioned the carbon replacement several times while i was talking to him at the IBike booth but didn't hint that he had one in a box behind the counter
it's actually possible to come to the conclusion even before realising it makes no sense at all
