    "Messed up" teeth on chainring

    When I was younger, one didn't want "missing," nubbed, or twisted teeth on one's chainring (or in one's mouth ). Am I right in thinking that rings are now designed this way?

    Mine still look more messed up than what is shown on Shimano's website.

    Usually, you'll see ramps on the side of the chainring, and maybe a shorter tooth after the ramp, but I have yet to see any missing teeth. Your smallest chainring should be pretty much normal looking though.
