Cycling with oval chainrings feels strange. Has something gone wrong?
Most likely not. Cycling with oval chainrings requires adaptations that take time. After having cycled for a longer period, the strange feeling should disappear.
I do not see any differences in my power output between the different ovality configurations. What could be wrong?
Cycling using an oval chainring might feel strange in the beginning. It requires (muscular) adaptations which take time. Moreover, switching quickly between different ovalities and (potential) angle of attacks might delay these adaptations.
What is the main difference between the virtual fixed and adjustable Q-ring?
Both represent the same ovality and are selected as ‘Q-Rings’ (step 4). An adjustable Q-ring allows changing the angle of attack, while a fixed Q-ring does not. The setting for a fixed Q-ring and adjustable Q-ring in OCP 3 are identical.
I am currently cycling with an adjustable Q-ring on my (outdoor) road bike, but I do not know my OCP number I am currently cycling with. What should I do?
There are 5 marked positions on your chainring, this could be numbers or dents. The alignment of 1 of these 5 positions with your crank arm illustrates your current OCP. For further information on the OCP numbers, please refer to the Rotor Q-ring manual.
