Funky Chainrings



Stories are starting to appear about the strange looking chainrings Bobby Julich was seen using during the Olympics. Some information can be found in this story as well as at the manufacturer's site. Unfortunately, I don't think there any reviews on them yet, but I asked the guys over at roadbikereview.com if they knew anything more about them (haven't heard back yet).

Ever see the BioPace rings Shimano built in the early 90s? The idea was to take advantage of variance in the average rider's pedal stroke by using an oval chainring. THis looks like an extreme extension of that idea.

Yeah, I think I even had a set many years ago.

Their website claims they are very different from biopace. Heh..
