    Chainrings... Raceface? Salsa?

    Are Raceface rings all that? Worth the extra $ over Salsa? I know alot here use Salsa with good results. Don't know much about RF.

    I like the Spot rings, last a lot longer than the unramped Vueltas I used to use.

    Salsa Rings

    I have four different Salsa rings and one Spot ring. I notice no difference in quality, both are great! The real difference between the two is price. I'd go Salsa myself if I was to buy a ring now. They're less expensive than Spot and I think Raceface?

    Real Design

    Check out cambria's hot deals section. They have a bunch of Real Designs CNC'd chainrings in compact and standard. I think that they are about 12 bucks for a 34 or 36, pretty nicely made and nickel-plated or something.

    IMHO, they are really cool and cheap , I don't care if they are silver because they hide behind the bashguard.

    I have 2 words about the Salsa rings, strong & cheap.

    The RF rings aren't that strong and wear out very quickly.
