ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Phil and Ben discuss elliptical chainrings. Over the last few years, another generation of elliptical/ovalized chainrings has emerged. Many people are still turned off by the poor design of the Biopace chainrings of the 1980’s-90’s.
The designs have been redesigned and refined with current technology to maximize the mechanical advantage in many situations. With more riders going to one front chainring set ups, we may see more riders switching over to elliptical chainring options.
Listen in as Phil gives his engineering thoughts about elliptical chainrings and discussing power, torque, traction, mechanical advantage, and more.
