My chainrings have become so bent that they rub against the front deraiileur. I was wondering if I should try to straighten the chainrings or just go and get some new ones. Also do most bike shops offer to straighten chainrings?

replace them (and maybe consider a bashring).
I always end up having to touch mine up a few times in the season, the occasional log catches me..YOu can do it yourself, But be carefull not to break off a tooth, I know the guy at the bike shop told me to use a rubber mallet if possible. At least try to straighten them before you get new ones, which ring is bent?
I think it might be the middle one, so I guess I might have to just get a new crank.
