    Repair or Peplace Chainrings

    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?

    Thanks

    Is morality determine by when no human is watching you or when no being is watching you? For if it is the latter, I can not be a moral person for I know God is with me each and every day.

    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.

    Thanks
