1/8" ring on 3/32" arm...
I know it's been done without issue, but i'm curious to know what kind of lifespan i can expect this setup to yield.
it's a 165mm sora crankset w/ a 1/8" ta specialties ring (rain/lockup bike, new build). The crankset is obv. made for a thinner 3/32" ring. As you can see in the below pics, there's a bit of overhang. Will this hold up well? I can't imagine the ring actually bending the ledge, but i'm curious to hear about what you've seen.
As you can see, the overhang isn't insane but it's there. The angle i took the pics @ exaggerates it quite a bit, but i think you can imagine what i'm talking about.
(shiny all over, in case you were curious)
