Initially thought it was my bb or chain, but I traced it down to the clutch in the RX derailleur. I've had the AB rings for about a year now and while they don't shift as nice as the OE Ultegra rings, I do feel the benefit of the oval and the gearing really improve my riding to justify the slower shifting. If you decide to sell your set up, let me know.
I do have the Ultegra clutch rear derailleur. Regardless, if you're interested, my price is $150 shipped via PayPal to lower 48 US states. Let me know if you need any pics.
