    I was one of the early adopters of the oval rings (5yrs ago), they are game changers on steep climbs with questionable traction. They even out the power output so the rear tire is less likely to...

    FWIW, SLX is really good. I have a stable of SLX parts which I use for backup of the higher end parts, and never notice a difference really. Except the shifter limitation, I love multi gear changes.
