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)

Four-Hole (104mm) Chainring Question

Anyone seen good ones like this?



I am working to "fix" my bike and getting a tough ring is a part of my proj. I posted here because I need more affordable alternative as this one costed 5500 Yen USED. I know this one is expensive because its for DH, but I only need it to survive citystreets.

I know I see you guys/girls with sugino stuff, but they are 130mm 5holes. I have seen 110mm's but they got 5 holes too.

Anyone have good ideas?

Thanks, T

Hey,

My bike is an old MTB. The choice of this part should tell you I care next to nothing about weight. 104mm 4 hole crank? What's more to say? I think it's ~50mm chain track.

I want to use 1/8 by 1/2 chain, but I am not choosey. This particular ring takes 7 speed chain.

I just want some of your wisdom ... about cheaper chain rings.

Thanks, T
