[SYD] WTB: Rotor Q-rings OCP3 50t + 34/36t

I'd prefer fresh, but beggars can't be choosers. My SRAM chainrings are knackered, so sell me some ASAP. :lol:

I ended up buying the full set with cranks and BBs from Jeff on here - I won't be using the rings so they're up for offers. 52t aero, and 36t inner.

For what it's worth, Rotor suggest 52t as the more useful alternative to a normal 50t ring.

Rich Ti, it comes down to whether or not I can safely modify my S975 Quarq which has big chunks of alloy where the chainrings need to go. Here is a pic from Google. Scary?! :shock:

I might be wrong, but does the chainring not slot in behind that?

Not worth modifying the chainring if not though - structurally unsound afterwards I reckon!

The Aero and standard chainrings have a circle inside, rather than the OCP3's arms . Not an issue really for the 130BCD, but a pain in the butt for the 110. Quarq have told me you CAN break out the file and flatten those ridges near the chainring bolts, but I'm not convinced that the ... I'm not convinced it is a wise move for something that can't be replaced under 1000 bucks... :oops:

If you are looking to offload, Rich, I'll have another look at it tomorrow. I might get Phil's chainrings after all 8)

OK Rich, I'll take em. I can definitely get them onto the quarq, and I think it would be losing some positions, but I can keep the vast majority of the rings without any modification at all. Just got to brutal up to handle a 36 on the climbs :PPPPPPPPPPPPPPP yes I'm weak. :PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP
