Hi Russell,

Yes, Bio-pace were made in alloy in the early to mid-90's, at least.

I have an alloy 28/38/48 set that I pulled off a 110/74 Derore crankset that's waiting to go on a friend's bike (she's been using Biopace primarily for at least 7-8 years, and has worn her old steel chainrings enough that it's STARTING to show).

Regards,

Neale
