    what's the easiest way to ID a track ring?

    So I got overly-excited and bought a large lot of chain rings on e-Bay. Some are road rings, some track. What's the easiest way to ID which are which? Thanks!

    track is traditionally 1/8. road's 3/32. if a road chain won't sit on it, it's track.

    edit: forget it. dolly just made me look stupid.

    If you want to know maker, model, year of manufacturing, quality and a few stories related to the type of chainring, just post a pic here.
