Just been on look out for some new compact rings and was rather alarmed how low a range CRC are now doing of Middleburn components, there used to be loads of options. Now only a handful. Anyone know why or better still someone that is still doing the whole range :-)

Middleburn have a totally new collection with road rings, 29" specific 4 arm duo combos and wotnot...

A lot of the older stuff won't be remanufacturered when it's gone.

Contacted Middleburn to check this out. So from the horses mouth.

"We have increased our range of 94/58 PCD rings recently and will not stop production of them.

We have stopped selling through CRC. We are selling through local dealers and mail order through Mark Anthony Cycles or
RJC X-TREME"

Selling through Mark Anthony?!
That's Activesport! Based on their Internet reviews and a near miss I had with them, that is a very bad choice.
