Is there anyone out there using ovalized chain rings? And if you are did you really notice a difference and did it take some getting used to?

And, yes, actual Q-Rings do have a specific shape--one that is much less radical than the shape of the O,Symetric rings in the picture above.

Speedneedle said:I have never tried the Biopace rings, but I understand that they had 7 phases and generally worked almost opposite to the Q-rings. I think they were made for riding to the bakery? ;-)
