    Yeah, my MiNewt light is red/green, but the newer Lumina lights that replaced the MiNewt line are red/blue. Don't worry, though, Niterider lights only seem to last one season anyway :)

    Really? I would be pretty wary of a crankset that cost less than $50 ... $50 is a pretty normal price for a [new] chainring, especially machined (not stamped) chainrings.
