    144bcd chainring suggestions pls

    SO id like to purchase a new chainring for my crankset. The stock 48t is cool since I like spinning but I think I should get a 50t to go with the 15t EAI cog that I have.

    There are so many options for 144bcd chainrings... A quick google hit gives me Sugino 75s, Zen variants (expensive!), Dura Ace, FSA pro track, Miche, Stronglight, Campy, TA...

    Any suggestions in the <$100 dollar range?

    FSA are by far the best bang for your buck.

    nice those are definitely affordable. I like the way they look too.

    I'm in the "whatever" camp with track chainrings. I've never found one that's unacceptable. FSAs are good bang/buck.

    Keep an eye on the second hand market. I picked up a brand new Dura Ace chainring about 6months ago for $35. It was a fixie rider that had no idea what it was worth.

    +2 on the FSA. Great quality, looks, and you can't beat the price.
