"brokenman, did you end up trying this experiment? for one ring prob it can work great, maybe gets dicey if you did a biopace double and a 10s or 11s chain? did you just up the price for biopace cranksets on eBay?  too bad there isn't a…"

"I have the rotors on my CX. 40 46. Love them... The real difference I think is that the rotors can be adjusted so that the smaller section is in a better place, ie you can adjust the dead spot to your liking, other than that likely the same. I will…"
