I'm considering changing to 4 bolt cranks, from 5 bolt, but I'm struggling to find one I like the look of. Show me your awesome 4 bolt chainsets, please!

Maybe not so retro but 4 bolt, square taper and sexy as hell!

I like them! What a shame Middleburn are no more. I'm still using one of their excellent chainrings, which seems to set a record for chainring longevity on any of my bikes, ever.

Middleburn are still going aren't they? I thought betd bought them.

Another alternative is xtr m95x with a middkeburn, ta or forge aftermarket spider. Or the standard 4 bolt integrated spider/outer ring.
