    How well would a normal chainring work?

    I find there's a much larger selection of 3/32 (8/9sp) 130BCD chainrings with profiled teeth, rather than non-profiled teeth. Assuming I keep my tension just right, will there be a hugely increased chance of the chain falling off if I go with profiled teeth?

    I'd go down to a 3/32 chain to match it, since that'll need replaced soon, too. *freewheel is already 3/32*

    I don't think you'll have too much of a problem.
    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'

    Chainline measures perfectly, so I don't think that'll be an issue.

    I'm running the chainring off of my roadbike (8spd). I've put maybe 100miles on it and even used it twice at the track. so far so good
