    No idea, but the indented swirls in the tubes kinda remind me of the ribbed tubing used in old Tange Prestige steel tubing.

    I'm sure your correct. I was actually thinking about Tange Ultimate tubing as used in the down tube of my '94 Kona Hot. Was columbus and/or miyata tubing ribbing swirled or straight?

    It's only a vague recollection, but I think they called it "rifled" (which would mean swirled).

    External fluted tubing has been used by Vulture, he used some to build my friends bike.

    Spider looks cool, but why would you drill holes in a sprocket and mount it with the tabs unused like that?

    Not mine. I didn't even notice. But yeah, that does look kinda silly now that you pointed it out.

    ummm, maybe because the sprocket was of a different bolt circle diameter and there wasn't space above the existing holes to drill new ones without compromising strength?

    Just seems like a lot of hassle when there are 9,365,437 sprockets out there with the right BCD...not to mention it just looks goofy with the "ears" hanging out for no reason.
    YMMV

    Seriously, and why spend so much on a pretty spider then go all half-assed on the ring?

    Good call. Googled and came up with several images of these. No drilling necessary. They already have both BCD. One less SKU for the shops. Still looks funny with the smaller bcd and tabs exposed.

    Yeah, those chainrings have become more popular because of the recent single speed, fixie fad.

    I prefer the any-size BCD "fits" option. Why limit yourself to 110 and 130?

    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.
