    large, black...

    ...chainrings.

    do they make them? like in 54-tooth? (i'm spec'ing out a build on a swift folder frame. rag on me for color-matching if you wish.) the only ones i've found are by FSA, and not only do they have huge tacky logos, they're more than twice as expensive as, say, a silver sugino 54t chainring. i also checked out the salsa chainrings, and for some reason only the small sizes come in black.

    From the custom chainrings thread?:

    54t will only give you about 60 gear inches, I run 53x16(road) and 53x14(track) on 24" wheels to give 75 and 86 inches. You might want to go for a 60t chainring just to give you more gearing options, but it would be a bit costly.

    stronglight does some big ones, but you'll probably have to go through xxcycle.com. Shipping is like $10, but the prices are good overall.

    i actually decided to run 48x13, which should give me around 70 gear inches with 20"x50mm Big Apple tires. but thanks for the suggestions everyone!
