Looking for a good set of upgrade rings.

Hey guys,

I just picked up a Trek Fuel 90 ('02 leftover), and aren't all that fond of the Bontrager rings. Like the 8500 I bought a few years before, the stock set seems cheap, easy to bend and may be contributing to my skipping chain.

What do you recommend for a good outer and middle ring that won't break the bank but is considered one of the better products?

Shouldn't that be "ditto"?

I hate to jump on the bandwagon, but my vote is for RF rings as well!

Race Face and Salsa are all good. RF are kind expensive though.
