    Which Chainring

    Well, it is time for a new chainring. Like many of you, I'm running a 32-18 setup which works pretty well around socal. I currently have a Vuelta aluminum ring up front that totally shot. I was hoping to get opinion on the best ring. Is it worth going to a steel front ring like the Surly?
    -Thx.

    I like the Salsa

    If you have 110 four bolt type, check out the classifieds, or PM me.

    Steel is my choice

    I have three Surly chainrings. They're stout steel and will outlast aluminum rings by, like, ten brazilian to one.

    I have 2k on a surly

    Doesn't look any diffrent then new..... Steel ringd tend to let you know when it's time to lube... They make a bit more nosie when there dry...

    I like Surly

    also, just lasts. Salsa is very good for an inexpensive ring. Don't like Blackspire, wore through it in a couple months along with Spot which is overpriced.

    Definitely Surly. If for some reason you want aluminum instead of steel, Spot and Salsa have both worked well for me in the past.

    Another vote for Surly. I'm running one on my winter beater which gets no maintenance and it still looks brand new. I'm also running one on my Inbred. I only wish they were available in black, but that's not happening...

    Surly

    Wow! Looks like Surly it is. It will match my surly cog as well.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Yes, but isn't the Surly heavier?
