    What I know

    I posted this picture already but I'll post it again. I can't tell you about the Isoflow but I have a Burley Runabout 7 speed I'm upgrading to a belt drive. The bike came with an X-Forge which I'e come to learn is an entry-level product. I can't find rings at the shop I got the bike from. The chain ring is the spider.

    If you have something like this I want it. I'd settle for a 172.5mm 104mm BCD crank also.

    isoflow = replaceable chainrings

    xforge = non-replaceable chainrings

    Both are heavy and low-end products

    Thanks - I'd still want a spare X-Forge chain ring though

    I'm a commuter so weight is not strong factor for me and the Burley is a heavy bike anyway. I'd love to have a spare X-Forge chain ring. I'll hack and grind the teeth off the X-Forge ring and mount the Gates sprocket on it once I've prettied it up some (maybe a powder or some other durable coating). The weight would drop anyway with the Gates belt system installed.
