    possible stupid question(superbe pro chainring stuff)

    so i went to put some of the components from the cannondale on my iro and had a little trouble.

    i couldnt use my chain on the new chainring and cog. is there some kind of difference i didnt know about between dura ace and iro, and suntour drivetrain components?

    im assuming getting a new chaing will help, but what do i need?

    sorry for being an idiot. thanks to anyone that can help.

    the chainring and cog are prolly 1/8" and the chain is 3/32"

    a new 1/8" chain will take care of it.

    do a search for the differences between 3/32nd and 1/8th. There was a thread about it yesterday or the day before.

    Oop beaten to it.
