4 bolt chainring outers bad joke pricing.

Why so expensive? :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

E.g they are about £60 each for 5800?

Any 10 speed 5 bolt chainsets around that are cheap and as light as a 5800 crankset to avoid being ripped off?

Or best to just buy a a whole new new chainset when the rings were out? (Works out cheaper than getting the chainrings)

    I suppose the obvious answer is the competing SRAM product, the Rival crank. Praxis Zayante and Alba are usually cheap enough on eBay. Shimano R500 is non-series, somewhere between Tiagra and 105 level I think.

    Third-party (Rotor, Praxis) four bolt rings should be along soon, though.
