As has been mentioned above, the best thing to do with the shimano ones is to rotate through 90 degrees to get the correct orientation. Another case of shimano getting the look of a product correct but cocking up the execution unfortunately, killed the oval ring dead in it's tracks which is a pity as they really work well!

Surely a biopace ring will play havoc with a single speed. You'll need an elastic chain.

apparently it does work with SS - though I must admit it goes against intuition! Maybe only if you have a tensioner...
