Of all components, I never knew chainrings could be sexy!

Top flight porn for sure.
Check out these (road) rings in action ...on the most beautiful chainset I've ever seen:
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=52499&start=30

iirc you used to be able to send them back to the company and they'd polish them up, free of charge.

if you want to start with frame and forks ( Passoni) , just give me a knock and I will sell you mine :lol: :lol:
and then you have to buy the rings and your lifetime bike is ready

I don't think want is a strong enough word, maybe 'covet' is more appropriate. :D
...unfortunately even the rings are way out of my reach..

I'm running ti rings (Tune) and part ti cassette (m953) and I haven't noticed any increased chain wear yet, all seems good. Apart from the spacing on the front rings, but I think I have to take the blame for that and get some shims in there!

Love these if you decide to put a price on them...

Only thing I have that's close to your wanted list is a pair of red Caramba V-brake rollers (to replace the noodles).
