    Pick-up pins on shifting chainrings? (Sugino XD300)

    So I decided not to get the Sugino RD b/c people say they're flexy. How about these Sugino XD300's?

    I heard they're stiffer. And they happen to be cheaper too.

    But, do those "pin/ramps to facilitate shifting" get in the way of fixed gear use?

    Also, I can take off the smaller two chainrings w/ no problems and it will work/look fine, right?

    Thanks!

    yes. if your chainline isn't 100% perfect, or you hit a bump, those ramps will shift your chain right off.
    in addition, the teeth of those chainrings are much shorter than a dedicated ss ring.
    It's worth shelling out the $6 for a rocket ring.
