144bcd chainring suggestions pls

SO id like to purchase a new chainring for my crankset. The stock 48t is cool since I like spinning but I think I should get a 50t to go with the 15t EAI cog that I have.

There are so many options for 144bcd chainrings... A quick google hit gives me Sugino 75s, Zen variants (expensive!), Dura Ace, FSA pro track, Miche, Stronglight, Campy, TA...

Any suggestions in the <$100 dollar range?

FSA are by far the best bang for your buck.

I'm in the "whatever" camp with track chainrings. I've never found one that's unacceptable. FSAs are good bang/buck.

Keep an eye on the second hand market. I picked up a brand new Dura Ace chainring about 6months ago for $35. It was a fixie rider that had no idea what it was worth.

+2 on the FSA. Great quality, looks, and you can't beat the price.
