    Rotor Q-Rings, you thoughts

    I haven't seen many of these out on the road, or even here on BF.

    Looks like they have the same theory as the O.symetric used by CSC.

    What do you think?

    I guess it'd be smart to add the site for those who don't know what I'm talking about

    Looks like somebody mis-mounted their Biopace rings off 2 bolt holes and decided they liked it that way.

    From the site:

    "The OCP System enables you to customize the position of the Q-Rings to suit your individual riding habits, body geometry, strength and position on the bike."

    I've got them (50/36 compact) on both bikes, and think they work wonderfully.

    I've got them and have been using them for about 1000 miles. For what it's worth, my FTP went up by 10 watts (though that could be attributed to increase in fitness) and leg fatigue has been significantly delayed. I'm hardly ever sore now, on rides that (with round rings) would leave me aching for at least a day or two (again could be due to increased fitness). The effects have been enough to warrant my keeping the rings.

    Vinokurtov also uses Q-Rings, hope he posts too.
