    I think that's the conclusion I've come to - £172 at Evans for the DA chainrings with a bit of cashback action, seems like a lower stress option than the best price (£170) I can find from the German retailers...

    If/when you sell your DA cranks let me know....

    an aerobar for those who need to sprint out of the saddle...

    alternatively 5 pints and a curry/kebab 2 times per week for a year would cost well over £3k as well...

    here here, lets get back to finding me a new chainset for TT'ing...

    what's the actual crack with O Rings everyone seems to have moved away from them again so presume its been debunked as BS, and id I read something about you needing to effectively gear up with them - looks like a set could be had for £150 though VS £170 for a set of 55x42 Dura Ace rings..

    ha, lol, a 70.3 works out about £250 and a full £450, they are on closed roads with frankly insane levels of infrastructure, shuttle busses, aid stations, kit moves etc, but they are very very expensive to do, especially when you add in accommodation and kit, and training costs I cant imagine the first one could be done for less than £3k, admittedly that's with the cost of a bike as well!

    now you know why I cant afford to buy a new chainset with chainrings I don't currently need...

    BTW - I will never get the tattoo...

    spare bikes, full time staff to hand up bikes, throwing away unwanted chainrings....

    You are correct, but buying a chainset with the wrong chainrings grates....

    I might just buy the chaining's and put them on my 6800 chainset and save myself £260....

    @hippy when you went single ring what did you do with derailleurs - just remember not to touch the front one?

    what I really want is Dura Ace 165mm with 55x42 for faster TTs and IM Mallorca - long downhill section - but its not available so considering just buying the chainrings and putting them on my 6800 but it'll look a bit shit, but I don't really want to have to buy a dura ace cainset and chainrings at the same time as $$$$$

    Unless anyone knows of something more aero available in 165 and 55x42 without making my q factor wider which the Rotors seem to do...

    I just find the description of the sizing's amusing, nearly as much as my wetsuit which says that I'm a Small Medium Tall....
