    Are the teeth on this chainring in good condition?

    This is a second hand chainring that I am about to buy.

    It's about the same price as a new chainring, however I could not find the same 53T version as new in my country (they are out of stock) so I am buying it used.

    Would say this chainring is almost like new or in good condition?

    Thanks

    Yes. Looks like the black paint is wearing off.

    Looks pretty similar to my couple month old sram red ring. Probably, 80-100 hours on mine. So, not brand new. But, not all that used either.

    So you DO just have a thing for tire threads in the General forum. Interesting.

    No, I'm versatile. I'd give someone **** if they posted about jerseys in GD. I'd do the same if someone posted about derailleurs in bikes/frames/forks. Yes, I think this thread definitely should've been in wrenching/components but just didn't feeling like bringing it up this time.

    Looks OK to me.

    Actually, I joined this thread just so I can keep up with the "post in the correct forum" drama.
