    removing large chain ring

    For my SS, the 42 tooth ring is attached to only big ring, which is part of the crankset. I will not ever be using the big ring and want to remove it. Any ideas? I guess I could cut it off.

    Grind it off, or smooth out the teeth and use it as a chain-guard to keep your pants from getting dirty or caught-up.

    i don't think cottered, i think it's just an old road crankset.

    i know exactly what you're talking about. and no, you can't do anything about it...
    besides getting a new crankset.
