What size should I choose?
* 30T Oval chainring has an ovality of 28/32T and is best for someone who currently uses 28 or 30T round ring.
* 32T oval ring will best suit someone who currently uses 31 or 32T chainring. While pedaling, you will feel quite similar effort to the one riding round 31T ring ( the smallest diameter of the oval is 30T), but you will gain the speed similar to riding 33/34T chainring.
* 34T Oval chainring has an ovality of 32/36T and is best for someone who currently uses 33 or 34T round ring.
