    Genius idea!

    Guys, given the current popularity of oval chainrings I've decided to jump the shark and develop an oval singlespeed cog.

    How many would you like?

    it doesn't work like that. the amount of power transfer or whatever would change several times through a pedal stroke rather than ramp up/down at crucial moments.

    But if it was narrow/wide and anodised purple, that would fix the lumpy power transfer.
