    Ti Chainrings

    Check out Boone Chainrings or Cycle Dynamics for some really long lasting chainrings!

    stainless steel too, those ti rings are sweet though!
    I've been running a loong time on some onza SS buzzsaws, but you gotta be running standard 5-arm cranks for those..
    seems like raceface is best bang for the buck for current cranks or the deore steel mid ring, shimano alu rings aren't lasting long at all anymore.

    or the deore steel mid ring
    Hmmmm, hadnt thought of a Deore ring. Found these at Adrenalin for 13$. Steel should last longer than what I have been using. Thanks!

    I've been running a 32t Cycle Dynamics middle for 2 years. I'm a large guy and as yet it shows virtually no wear.
