    Quarq and 11 speed rings

    Anyone using a Quarq power meter with rings for an 11 speed set up? If so what rings are you using?

    Yep as long as the spider is one of the new ones and you can torque the chainring bolts to 10nm when swapping out the rings all should be fine. Let the rings seat a bit with some hard efforts during the first ride then recalibrate.

    I've been using a Quarq Riken & its stock SRAM "Powerglide" chainrings, on Campy 11sp drivetrain.

    It works OK, but doesn't shift nearly as fast & quietly as the Campy chainrings.

    The difference is because Campy Chorus chainrings have more pins & ramps to aid shifting, than the SRAM rings do ... Not because it is 10sp vs 11sp.

    When the SRAM rings start wearing out, I'll switch to Stronglight or maybe WickWerks rings.

    I've used Stronglight 11sp rings before & think they work just as well as Campy 11sp.

    No experience with WickWerks, but their ramp design seems interesting and could have superior shifting.

    Interesting I think my SRAM RED shift better than the Chorus, try Praxis perhaps?

    I guess I should have mentioned - the rest of the groupset plan is Shimano 6800 - probably will work fine with other rings though?

    I just built a BMC with 6870, Quarq Elsa, and Praxis 11s Rings. I am not quite finished with everything, but once I get it out on the road I will let you know how it shifts.

    From my research Praxis seemed to shift the best with Dura-Ace 9000, so I assumed it would translate well to 6800/6870.
