Scrod, yes I see that their alloy stamped cogs are in that price range. Are these quality parts? I don't have a distributor in France for these. Literally 800m from my house is a shop where I can...

Hey, thanks for the info. I just checked them out.

I see the quote "They're made from machined, heat-treated, and chrome-plated SCM415 CroMoly steel." Does this mean forged or stamped?

Hey all.

Looking to take my track-turned-road bike on some longer, hillier rides with dozens of really steep climbs longer than what my skills and 72kg can power through.

If Avid and Shimano gave me 15.000€ I'd say it was a chain ring, too.

Must've been one of those one-tooth, perfect clean slice chain rings.
