    Nice man. I picked up a used chainring from Japan [off ebay] that finally arrived the other day. Hopefully it belonged to a world champ

    Sweet! I got a 49 and 50. 51 is next on the list but right now I'd be starting like a rolling brick if I were pushing a 51-15. Gym membership is a good idea. I go back in the gym starting tomorrow. Was doing great until I hurt my chest and had to take some time off. As far as gearing, I picked up a 15t and 16t Dura Ace ring so I should be set for a bit (famous last words). Next big purchase is going to be a nice tubular wheelset - once my wife picks her jaw up off the floor after seeing the price of some of the carbon tubular wheels. Hahaha!!! Damn track cycling addiction!

    It takes everything in me to not pick up new track gear constantly, but I've been thinking about picking up a 51t sooner than later. I prefer the FSA chainrings, but has anyone tried the Affinity chainrings? There's a suspicious lack of information about them on their own website, but the price is so, so right.

    They don't mention the type of aluminum used.

    That's what has me the most curious--no mention anywhere of the specific alloy they use. I e-mailed Affinity a few days ago asking which type of aluminum they used for their chainrings, but I haven't gotten a response yet.

    I'd pass on them until reviews come in.

    for twenty five bucks, i wouldn't shy away from using one. if it needs to be replaced before too long, well, it's not much money out the window.

    carleton, it sounds like you're usually particular about what gear can withstand your madd sprinterz watts, so i can see where you're coming from. but me, as a skinny little enduro, i don't screw up chainrings or flex other gear much. so i wouldn't really hesitate to try out an unproven ring.
