Chainrings and Wedding Rings
Cindy and I stopped wareing our rings. It is sad, and complicated but, true to my optimistic nature that transcends reality, I was considering the 25 grams I saved by not waring a ring. Right, it isn't much but 25 grams is about what I saved going from stainless steel chainring bolts to aluminum bolts on my single speed. The aluminum bolts broke two miles into a ride I drove across the state to do last summer. I was really looking forward to that ride but you need all four bolts for it to work. The thing about saving weight is knowing what makes sense and what doesn't.
