Poprad Chainring?

I have a 2006 Poprad, which has a Bontrager Race GXP Cyclocross cranks 46/38. http://www.bontrager.com/model/06044/en


I've been using the bike exclusively on the road, and would like to have slightly higher gears at the high end. Can I just pick up a, say, 50 or 52T Shimano chainring and switch it out, or is it more complicated than that? How can I find out about compatibility?

i have a 2008 poprad and i have a 53T chainring, it's a good bit larger and required a longer chain. works wonderfully. it's faster and didn't require any other modifications.

you'll have to reposition your front derailleur higher as well.
