More delicate? I do still have the original PowerGlide ones (see studio photos) but those are definitely more flexy than the current Red ones. I do wish these were all black, but not enough to spray them or anything.

i think the red chainrings look to chunky, the powerglides would be sweet imho

It takes a lot of time to break in -- probably like 150 miles before it really started to flex -- but once it does it's great. It's feels like a mix of the Selle Italia SL I had before and a Fizik Aliante.
