    Some good low cost chainrings

    I've invested in 13-15 cogs for the past year and now is the time to buy some chainrings. I currently have a 48T Campagnolo and a 50T Zen, I'm looking to get a set (46,47,49) so I'm trying to keep the unit cost to a minimum. My options are: FSA's Pro Track wich cost $55 and they seem to be the best cost X benefit so far. Other options are the Sugino 75's for $98. Miche and Stronglight are also a possibility.

    Can you guys help? Are the FSA's the best option? Is there another ring I missed?

    I got my FSA at outsideoutfitters for 45.93$, makes them even sweeter.

    The search function of that site is f####$$$## ******** and it's not the right place, if you want the stuff tomorrow.

    The FSA ring and the Miche one are the two best moves for quality at a good price.

    FSA Pro Track. I've still got some that I bought new in 2009.

    They aren't the lightest, but they are round, solid, and well-made. Definitely the best bang for the buck...especially if you are on a limited bike budget.

    Keep a good eye out for sales and also things from the fixie guys. I've been looking around for good value rings. I happened onto a brand new DA ring from a fixie guy for only $35. A few months ago I also got onto a sale on Probikekit and got 3 new DA rings at $70 each. If you're in urgent need, then FSAs have a really good rep, but if you're not in a hurry I'd wait it out and look around.

    Avoid TA like the plague. I have three virtually unused - or unusable because they are not round. When I complained to TA they replied that was normal for their chainrings. Bulls...
