    Drivetrain advice.

    I'm looking at upgrading my drivetrain on my track bike as in chainring (144 bcd), chain (1/8th) and rear cog.
    Looking for something smooth, quiet, durable, affordable (I know these words rarely go together)

    Are there any particular combinations that work quite well? All I know is that I can't afford a phil wood rear.

    I was thinking dura-ace cog, izumi eco track chain....

    I had a search around for chain ring advice but didn't find much.

    Cheers,

    Sean.

    Cycling Underground chainring, Dura Ace sprocket, any decent chain. Should be fine.

    Not sure about the front chainring but it's track specific.
    KMC Z chain and Roselli track cog.
    I'll take a picture now

    That's my front chain ring, it might not even be worn. I'm pretty bad at working it out. Cranks are SR royals.

    Roselli cogs are pretty good. Shouldn't really need to upgrade that unless it is worn. Although it is nice to replace your full drive-train all at once. I ride a CU chainring, DA cog and a KMC Kool chain.

    CU will set you back $70, but worth every cent. Cycle Underground Chainring Designs

    If you absolutely need to save cash then you can get a TA chainring, DA cog and KMC chain all off Ribble delivered to Aus for $70ish. Good set up for not so much. But it seems to me that your current setup is pretty good, so if you're gonna upgrade then you may as well go all the way and get CU.

    Edit: for all you haters, replace 'sprocket' with 'cog' as you will.
