    Not sure if you guys check the mech forum much -
    Non-offset chainrings -what's your thoughts on turning them over?
    I ride a mtb (geared) with one front chainring, so I have increased wear compared to doubles, triples.
    You may already do this, or it might be something to consider...

    Peace>jef.

    done it plenty of times, especially with unramped rings. works just fine.
    I believe the clouds in my coffee more than the weatherman on t.v.

    The other thing you can do is run bigger chainrings, Ive got a 52T that has around 45,000 miles on it, a 42 wont last quite as long. Same goes for rear cogs, so many people microdrive the rear, its silly. I wont run anything smaller than a 16 on the rear if I can help it.
