When I used to ride trails, I'd jam the chainring on something every once in a while. A log, a ditch, something. I suppose that might be more hazardous in such a situation. I can't see it being much of an issue on a road bike. Until you crashed and bent the chainring and couldn't ride home.

You know whose opinion I would value on this, though? Busted knuckle or RDV4Roubaix. But RDV4 has gone off the forums, leaving bk all alone. I don't know who else has that good LBS experience.

Nice Bunnies in the background..what manufacturer? Let me guess, either FSA or scram(sram)...race to the bottom for both these makers..what ever is cheapest(but it's so light!!)..

Not surprised.
