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)

Cheap 110 bcd, 5 bolt BMX chainrings.

Do they work for fixed gear?

Anyone use them? Are they any good?

The reason I ask is that the "perfect gear" on one of my bikes is either 53-20 or 45-17. A 53 would need to go on the outboard side of the cranks in order to clear my frame, then the chainline would be all messed up.

That leaves the BMX rings. 19.99 shipped.

I've used the Rocket Ring and "Universal" from Dan's Comp and they work fine. Higher end stuff might last a bit longer but these get the job done and last plenty long for the price.

BMX rings are just fine by me. I'm a big fan of 110bcd.
