where are you riding that you spend all of your time on the big dog?

Commuting, the road possibly. I was in it pretty much all day today on an MTB, 21gears an all.

You could look out for a Surly stainless ring (like those on my cro-mega)...

...not cheap initially but last for ever 8)

Have you considered changing the spider for one with a more common BCD: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=7056&utm_source=Google&utm_medium=Shopping&utm_name=UnitedKingdom

This would give you a more choice of chainrings, Surly for example, do stainless steel rings which should last longer than alluminium: http://www.ukbikestore.co.uk/product/54/crsu10/surly-stainless-steel-chainring-110bcd-5-arm.html and Stronglight have a selection of 104 and 110 BCD rings: http://www.spacycles.co.uk/products.php?plid=m2b2s149p0



Yeah but unfortunately the spider replacement is for the newer cranks not old ones like mine. I have found a cheapy thanks to a previous poster on this thread.
So...getting there, rear cassette and chain replaced just the outer ring then the old girl is good to go.
