    EighthInch Chainring Soft as Butter

    I just purchased an EighthInch chainring. I have heard these rings are good, I know Scrod is a big advocate.

    My ring feels super soft and I feel that its to a point where the alloys integrity is being compromised while its being pinched by the chainring bolts.

    Anyone else have a similar experience? or any problems with theirs?

    I've seen chainrings like that most of my life.

    Maybe you should consider a steel one if it bothers you too much.

    This is rediculous. I have a simple concern with a new chainring and for some reason everyone expects me to have the answers to my own questions.

    It isn't like this is a bike forum or anything, right?

    it isnt a matter of preference by something "bothering me,"

    I am asking from simply a "matter of fact" perspective.

    I gave you the straight goods. If you want a tough chainring spend $100+ or get steel. Most chainrings are not heat treated 7005 with hard anodizing.

    It's "soft" because it is inexpensive. If this is not clear...
