Hi Guys:
There seems to be lots of interest in various shapes of chainrings these days. We just published this paper showing that they have absolutely no physiological effect. Importantly, we also show that they inflate the power values provided by power meters which may explain why some people think they work. Here's a link to the abstract: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34911039/ If you want the full paper let me know.
Cheers,
Jim
