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)

52T 4-bolt chainring????

Hello,

did anyone come across any 52T 4-bolt chainring that is compartible with the Deore crank?
I want to convert my MTB to a single speed and wanted to save some money by just replacing the
current chainring on the front crankset.

Thank you in advance.

cheers,
kel

Why the hell do you need a 52t ring on a mtn bike conversion?

I think your best bet would be Harris. They carry lots of rings.

He's got a 26t cog in the rear.

What's your BCD?

EDIT! - Just saw that you're talking Deore, so that'd be 104 I think.
