    Is this a problem?

    Noticed that some of the teeth on the big chainring were cut/ground shorter than others on my new fantom team. My guess is that it wont hurt anything, but it seems like I got a factory second or something. Would you try to get BD to replace it if you were me? Could this create any problems down the road?Chainring 1.jpg

    All good chainrings nowadays have some shorter teeth, so that chain can drop off or climb up when you shift. Notice the shift pin next to those teeth. They are aligned.

    Looks perfectly normal to me. Only really cheap and crappy cranks come with chainrings with no ramps, pins and shortened teeth.
