If I'm willing to wait or the ring I want is rare I may look on ebay for chainrings. Often I've gone to my LBS (typically, Harris Cyclery) for "commodity" rings like 110mm BCD. Prices vary depending on the brand or BCD. Campy NR rings are expensive. Common sizes of 110mm Sugino rings may be $35 to $40, but for an ebay purchase you have to factor in postage and the fact that if it isn't a new ring it may be in unknown condition. If I'm lucky I have what I need in my meager parts collection. Sometimes I've traded with another BF member. Unless you are on a really tight budget or trying to restore a classic, chainrings are just chanrings.
Real cyclists use toe clips.
With great bikes comes great responsibility.
Honking a car horn is a privilege, not a right.
