    Oval Absolute Black Chainring vs. X01 34T and spider.....weight differences and pics

    My friends were giving me a hard time and said my bike didn't have enough black on it so I went ahead and got the absolute black oval chainring. Saved several grams with the switch as well. Maiden voyage will be tomorrow but just riding it around my house I can't really feel the oval effect very much. I will give a better review tomorrow afternoon.

    Nice bike. Could use more black though.
    Thought about one of those too, but not available for pf30 bb yet I don't think.

    Looking at a black chain to finish it off but having a hard time spending the money for it. More expensive than the ring itsel.

    I just peeled them off with my fingernail after taking a rag with rubbing alcahol and letting it sit over the sticker for a minute or so. Then just rubbed the residue off.

    I've had this ring on both my bike now for about a month and am loving it. It's crazy it felt so natural after just a few pedal stokes. I find I get better traction up technical and rocky climbs as the pedal stroke feels smoother than a round ring. I also love the feel of the extra power when accelerating out of corners!

    If interested in a AB chainring I highly recommend you try one out! If you purchase any chainring through the AB website Sram OVAL GXP Type MarinCA in the notes section and receive a 50% rebate on your shipping costs every little bit helps!
