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)

Single speed chainrings...

I'd like to find matching single speed chainrings, (5 bolt/130bcd) in 42t and 46t. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Along the same lines, does anyone know of a good 47 tooth chainring I can get, with a 144BCD (Sugino 75s)? My cranks are anodized green so if it could match those, all the better.

Yeah that one is sweet ... was thinking about getting it but was holding out on the off chance that someone could recommend a 47t one. Course I would have to anodize it myself if I wanted it to match ...

Bah.

P.S. Sorry for hijacking your thread.

I use a 44T FSA on my cross bike. It's was about $40 and pretty nice. It's unramped in comes in a huge assortment of teeth count.

Salsa makes very nice and affordable unramped chainrings. Your LBS can order them for you.

Yeah. I thought of them but I saw that they don't make a 46t, just a 45.

http://www.salsacycles.com/chainrings.html

I'm thinking these might work but Jensonusa isn't sure if they are 3/32 width.

http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...Chainring.aspx

BTW - I'm building a beater crosscheck to ride off and on the road fixed. I paid for a 17/21 Surly Dingle cog and I want a 42t chainring on the inside for a 2/1 gear ratio off road and a 46t on the outside for a decent road gear when I run slicks. I need to have a 4t dif between the rings so that the chain doesn't move when I switch gears.

I'd bet very good money that those sugino chainrings are 3/32".

The other good option is the surly stainless steel rings.
