    I like the Race Face Cinch. Simple, light, inexpensive...

    Doing the job with a new BB?
    Race Face Turbine or Atlas offer direct mount chainring or spider mount like the old school memories. Both are 30mm cinch.
    Swapping from bike to bike is easy since the arms can be removed and spindle changed unlike the press fitted variety.

    Turbine here too, works well (and no issues with carbon like the next version).
    Steel rings are cheap but heavier than aluminum.

    Sounds too Walmart like "Next" The Wally World house brand. Race Face shoulda abandoned that moniker...

    Aluminum rings have been trouble free. Many choices in terms of colors as well as round and oval.
