Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Rotor Rings?

Anyone have good results with a set? I have an Ultegra crankset, is it possible for me to remove my existing rings and just buy a new set of the Rotor Rings?

I'd rather pay 250 for a set rather than 500. Knowing my luck, I'd but the whole crankset, hate it and then sell it for a loss.

I really like mine. Bought just the big ring first so I can compare it to a small traditional round ring. I'll be keeping mine and probably pick up the small ring in the future. Mine are on SRAM force crank arms and look great.

I was thinking about doing the same thing. It is very hard to set up?

You'll have to give it a couple of months before you'll notice whether or not they made you any faster.

The FD took a bit of tweaking but now the shifting is very good. Just needs some time to set up properly.
