  • read through this (and the saffron thread) earlier - now subbed to both and stoked for the madness : )

  • 41? You don't look a day over 40! Take up yoga, cut the stem. ;)

  • No madness yet but I do (finally) have two chainrings... This has been something of a saga: I wanted a 33t inner ring for when I'm carrying panniers, so I ordered 33t/48t to keep the gap below 16.

    But 33t / 11sp Zephyrs don't reeeally seem to exist, despite what the stock lists may say: I tried a couple of different places and both times recieved a 9/10 speed and had to send them back... In the end I gave up and went with 50 / 34 Syrius inner and outer.

    Which means I COULD have just bought a compact R7000 chainset... but where's the fun in that?!

  • There's a certain charm in Spécialités TA products.

  • Let's hope so!
    I actually do feel quite loyal to TA, at least for chainrings. I have done my best to destroy them in the past but have never yet suceeded.

  • Spa Cycles has a good selection of chainrings. I use their own zircal rings 48/33 with 11 speed­5/SPA-CYCLES-110-BCD-Zicral-Middle-Inner­

  • I'd be interested to hear how these are holding up if you've had them for a while?
    I've used the cheap triple chainrings from Spa before and they died within months... although to be fair these look / sound quite a lot better.
