Oops ... I was bit jumpy with the trigger finger !!!

I've had the great pleasure of meeting "the crew" at Cycle Underground as they're local to me here in Sydney. After seeing a few made the first thing that came to mind was precision, and the second was precision. They really are marvels and although they do chainrings for multiple geared bikes their main interest (so far)has come from the singlespeed/fixed gear crew.

I can vouch for their quality and have been interested in having some rings for my 49d cranks made up. Below is a pic of a batch of rings that were freshly made when I paid a visit. They are just buffed with a scotchbrite pad. They offer a polishing service if you insist (and pay) but it's easier and far cheaper if you do it yourself. http://www.cyclebucket.com/images/curings.jpg

In saying all that Boulder Bicycle (Mike Kone and the Hersette's) have a good stash of TA rings for very reasonable prices. http://www.renehersebicycles.com/onlinestorewelcom.htm
