Do I need to buy a new crank or can I just buy a new chainring?
I am currently riding and switching out parts on a Mercier Kilo TT. Seen here:
I have already switched to a 17 tooth cog. I am now looking to switch the stock 48 tooth crank to a 44 tooth. Can I just purchase a 44 tooth chainring, or must I buy an entire new crank? I am learning as I put my bike together, so any advice is welcomed and much appreciated! Thanks.
Just get a 44t chainring with a 130bcd bolt pattern. Is your chain 1/8" or 3/32"?
The chain is 3/32". I found this on ebay:
Will this work on my bike?
That won't work...it's 1/8". You need to find a 3/32" ring.
I had to edit the post. This is what I meant to post:
And thank you for replying!
No prob. That'll do the trick!
Thanks! Do you know of any websites/videos that show how to change the chainring?
