Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

130 BCD 1/8" rings?

What are my options for 130mm BCD chainrings in 1/8"? I ended up with a 1/8" cog and chain and my 3/32" ring is pretty noisy. I'm not sure I can see my way clear to spending $200 on a set of 75s (plus cost of chainring) - can I keep my old road double (or a set of RDs) and still get a non-hideous 1/8" chainring?

don't know that any exist, but rocket rings are fairly thick 3/32" and are 110/130 bcd.

you could also get 130bcd cranks, as there are a few options for 130bcd 1/8" rings.

A standard road double(like the rds) isn't 110. 110 is a compact double. As already mentioned there are plenty of options for 130 are you sure your is 110 not 130?
