    I'd like to buy it on E-bay as it's a lot cheaper then CJ & al.
    But I don't want sprockets made out old sardine tins, i want to skip a link in the retail chain.
    Some prices out by the reputable dealers are double E-bay :evil
    Hopefully it's the same chain, made by slaves in China :cry

    Stealth/Sidewinder/Krause racing sells the (in my opinion), best sprockets. They'll deal direct with you. I bought a DID ZVM 525 off EBay for about $200.

    I am pretty thrifty about spending money on bike parts, with two major exceptions, tires and chain/sprockets. Not having to adjust the chain every week, noise, wearing out the sprockets, etc... A little extra money spend now will save you money in the long run. No problem buying on Ebay as long as it's apples to apples. I have bought the same item cheaper online rather than Ebay. Don't settle for a lesser chain to save a few bucks now.
