I can speak to the anodizing quality. The alloy bars and chainrings are both
In terms of "experimental approach." It's an apples to apples approach as far
as I go through way more rings on the SS so that is where I have the largest

thousands of kilometres of fireroad cruising, or millimetres of rain, or the
number of pounds of sand they pull from their BB shells every month. I doubt
it, but anything's possible?
Factor in personal bias, various standards for bike maintenance, and differing
opinions on when to replace chains and my simple hope is that, as unscientific
