fyxomatosis track chainrings

Greetings from Melburn.

Finally, you can sink your teeth into these.

fyxomatosis chainrings

All 144BCD - 1/8th
All 4mm plate.
Australian made.

Tested on couriers and track animals.

All come with a 12 month 'Kill me if you can'* warranty.

RAW finish - USD$59 delivered
POLISHED Finish - USD$69 delivered

Get them HERE




If you wear out a chainring significantly from riding in 12 months, we will replace it FREE.

No exceptions.

It will take more than a ride across China and back to wear us out in a year - Good luck!

*TC approved.

I seriously just sliced and ate a tomato after seeing that pic... Nice chainring. Make some in 130bcd and 3/32 and you'll clean house. Whats the material and weight anyway? I assume aluminum and light but it almost looks like stainless and heavy LOL.

The tooth profile and contact area for the chain is greater = longer life, better wear.

They are SUPER silent. I've ridden just about every chainring there is - Suntour Superbe, Campagnolo, Sugino, No namers, SR, Dura-ace. These are quieter and wear better, even with the wipperman BMX chain I had.

They'll be available eventually in 130/135 - 1/8th.

They're not light due to their beefy cut, material is aluminium.

When I get some digital scales I'll have an accurate weight.

Ride safe.

All in odd-numbered teeth?

Those look incredible! I ride a Sugino setup right now. 46x16. I might try out one of those 47 rings when you get them in 130bcd

these are better. www.cycleunderground.com.au and they make them to pretty much any specs you want and with lots of cool designs. the guys are really cool too. i needed 135 and they did that. i might have them make me one in 130 for my daily ride. theyre made using one single process, unlike most major chainring manufacturers (even high end rings like the sugino zen) which assures that the tolerances are higher because they are not being transported between machining machines

anyway, theyre designed like that because its a deeper profile for the chain to sit in AND your (hopefully) not shifting on a fixie so this design keeps the chain around the chainring better.

Since when are sugino zen rings high end?


These from OP look really good, and anyone who can put a warranty on their product speaks volumes.

Wow... I am gonna get one of hose other ones for my buddy who cant find a 47 or 49t 130 bcd 1/8" chainring he likes... those seem nice.

Sugino NJS Track Racing Zen chainrings are a bit more fancy than the standard Sugino 75 chainring and their Messenger Zen...

Quoted from Ben's:



"Sugino ZEN RACING (NJS)
1/8" 144 BCD CHAINRING 44-55t

7075 T6 aluminum, stamped, machined and then polished smooth.

The Zen Racing ring also features the SSGN super smooth tooth profile, which means the tooth valleys are rounder and the side tooth profile is smoother than the standard Sugino 75 SSG rings.

This slightly more expensive process helps reduces chain noise and also improves ring and chain engagement and wear."




"Sugino MESSENGER Chainring

Similiar to the big brother ZEN, just a bit smaller for the street. 42-45t

Made out of stiff T6 aluminum, stamped, anodized black and machined . A gorgeous high-quality 1/8" ring at a great price."


I think I may get one of the OP's chainrings, 47 or 49t polished, for my Campagnolo Record crankset. Theyre pretty...

I was actually about to ask if these guys are the ones making the Fyxomatosis chainrings. I'm almost sure they are, the options match up, australia made, and comparable price.

I have a cycle underground ring though, and it is awesome.

Should make them in the old Campy record/ Sugino Mighty Comp pattern.

And maybe make some 151 bcd ones. 49 t and polished would be perfect.
