Bad News From Japan: No More Sugino 75 Chainrings


I just read this sad news from Rene's blog. Sugino has discontinued their very excellent and slightly more economically priced 75-series NJS-certified track chainrings for 2009. This sounds very strange as one would expect there be huge and growing market for these things but I trust Rene as he runs a fixed gear / track bike shop in Osaka and knows his stuff.

I've cried many tears after reading about that. So sad.Or they just want to maximize their incomes for the next year, when new 75's are brought out..
