    Chainring!

    So in a couple threads I have recently been talking about chainring tension and chainring un-roundness.

    I have an old Crank set (sugino maxy) and as near as I can tell, the chainring is making my life difficult.

    It seems it's too tight in it's tightest spot and very loose on the opposite. Now I can get a decent compromise, but It makes it really difficult to get the right tension whenever I have to change a tube.

    I have a nice Soma 18t 1/8 cog in the back and a 1/8 chain. I wasn't able to 'properly' measure my BCD, but comparing it with my girlfriend's crank, I am faily confident that it is 110mm.

    The problem is, I can't seem to find a 52t 1/8 chainring with 110BCD.

    I would prefer not to spend a lot of money. and I would prefer not to have to buy a new smaller rear cog in order to keep the same gear.

    So, my question is, where can I find Decently priced chainrings of the above specification?
    No matter how bad things get, they can't get any better, and they can't get any worse, things are what they are, so you better get used to it Nancy, quit your B*tchin'

    You are probably better off using a 3/32" chain ring if you want to keep that 52/18 ratio.
    The largest 1/8" 110BCD chain ring is probably the Origin 8 ones, which only goes up to 48.
