I have a wishlist of maybe a dozen ones of various patterns, and I'd be willing to buy quantities of each one. There is a US source (that makes the Origin-8 and similar stuff), but their minimum run is 100 pieces per ring, and they use a pretty low-grade alloy, I think. But they are very inexpensive....
As far as I know,fyxomatosis just bought their chainrings from Cycle Underground, which seems to be out of business, along with Highpath.
