1) Truvativ . . . My bike came with Truvativ Omnium cranks, and a 48-tooth 144 1/8" ring, labeled "Truvativ AL-7075-T6." I am probably going to add a 49 and 50 to the bag. Frankly, the Truvativ ring is nice looking and seems solid, and I wouldn't mind sticking with the brand. But between the Web and calls to local shops, I can't find them. Is there anywhere to get Truvativ track rings, or is my 48 just a one-shot OEM and there are no other sizes?
2) If not . . . what is the way to go? Are Dura-Ace rings really worth twice the price of most others (which is what the Web stores seem to have them for)? Sugino 75 -- nice? Are there any brands to avoid? Would I look like a total dork to pair a black, solid FSA ring with the soft silver/champage Omnium spider?
