Changing Chainrings together with Chain and Freehubs/Freewheels - General Rule?
I recently changed a chain and freehub and I got to thinking - when should I change the chainrings? I have read here that the chainrings will outlast the freehubs/wheels, but by how much? I would think it would be best, for wearing purposes, to change the chainrings at the same as changing the chain and freehub/wheel, so is there some general rule as the following:
"Change the chainring every xth time you change a chain and freehub/freewheel"
It would seem following this rule would be a good practice. So if such a practice exists, what is the value of "x"? Does it depend on the type of bike and the type of riding?
