Chainrings for 110BCD 5-arm crankset
So, I have this old crankset, a Race Face Deus XC (with the carbon fiber inserts and everything). It's got three 5-bolt 110 BCD chainrings. The largest ring has a few chipped teef. So far it hasn't caused me too many problems but I am considering some replacements. Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems that any replacement chainrings I find will be for road-bike compact cranks, since I don't think 5-bolt 110BCD is so common for MTBs, right? So, is it OK to use road-bike chainrings on a mountain bike, considering that MTB rings experience a lot more stressful shifts under load?
