Oval chainrings aren't exactly popular, but you can see the appeal. Designed to prolong your "power zone" and reduce deadspots, rings like the Rotor QX1 might look a little strange, but they work. Rotor designed the QX1 to run with SRAM, Specialized, and Rotor one-by drivetrains, and gave it multiple mounting holes so you can adjust the orientation of the ring to suit your style. The thick-and-thin tooth profile locks the chain on to prevent drops, and the aluminum construction is lightweight but bomber, so you can ride it for years.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
