#!markdown I'm a fan of Renthal stuff already, and this was on my radar as my next ring, so I appreciate your thoughts. I vaguely recall reading somewhere (not Renthal) that the ano they use is the hardest available (or at least used in cycling), so that's got to be a factor. I think Funn might use it on some of their stuff too. Just one criticism of your experimental approach: I think testing the ring on a single speed, with the fixed, and close to ideal chainline, would avoid the wear from the variable chainline of cassette gearing, which would be a significant source of wear, possibly the most significant. What do you think? If you're making comparisons to other rings you've been using on your single speed, then I suppose that's a decent control. I'm not so concerned about 1/8″ chain brought up by others here.
