Strengths:    Super high quality. Superior engineering, design, and manufacturing resulting in a excellent product. And of course, precision shifting.

Weaknesses:    In my opinion, the rings are rather 'ugly' - a strange titanium color that is rather vogue at the moment. Many people find them fashionable and sporty - personal preferance . . . I went for function over form . . .

Bottom Line:   
This is for the New Shimano Compact Rings (not really DA or Ultegra - just the best place to put this review. Installed rings on a FSA SL-K compact crank - immediate improvement in shifting - solved the sloppy big ring to small ring down shift and occassional dropped chain that seems to be standard with FSA. I hate to say it, but Shimano engineering, design, manufacturing, and end-products are of very high quality - consistently the best in the industry. The Shimano 50-T ring has all sorts of special machining, appropriately positioned shift pins, and specially formed teeth to specifically address the 16-T ring size differential without any need for special derailleurs. Down shifts are now crisp and efficient and with no fears of chain drop during critical moments. Up shifts - perfect. Installation - easy (off-set slightly different than the FSA rings - I would suspect that to obtain desired performance, both the front rings should be swapped out at the same time). If you have FSA rings and complain about less than desireable shifting (like everyone I know that runs them), switch to the Shimano compact rings for better performance.

Similar Products Used:   Was using the standard FSA compact rings supplied with FSA SL-K crankset (at the time of bike build-up, really the only manufacturer with availability of compact drive - non-Campy). Shifting was always less than desireable (note: this was even with the supposedly new and improved FSA 10-spd compatiable rings). In conversations with FSA Techs and various LBS mechanics, they stated that is simply the way it is with a 16-T chainring jump (not true!). After about 4000-miles, a tooth broke on the 50-T ring (what crap - never had this happen on a road bike - ever!).

Bike Setup:   Drivetrain: DA-10spd with FSA SL-K cranks (now with Shimano rings!)

Ultegra 6750 Compact Crankset Inner Chainring options...

Hello, I am considering building a bike with an Ultegra 6750 compact crankset. I am a bit fussy about gearing and would like to opt for a 50t outer ring and 38t inner ring. I believe the Ultegra outer ring is proprietary and hollow and good news there is...I am fine with the std 50t outer ring an ... Read More »

ultegra chainring on a Sram Red crank?

when I bought my bike, I had it set up with a Dura Ace front derailleur and an Ultegra compact crank (6650, I think). Last winter I swapped out the ultra crankset for a Quarq/Sram Red compact crankset. With the Sram crankset, the front der. shifting is worse than it was with the Ultegra, and no ma ... Read More »

replacement chainring for Ultegra 6500 crankset

I have an Ultegra 6500 crankset that is 52/39, and would like to put smaller chainrings on it (36/48). Unfortunately, I cant seem to find any Shimano 130 bcd chainrings that are smaller....but I believe SRAM makes 130 bcd chainrings with the number of teeth that I am interested in. Can SRAM chai ...
