    Help me find a compatible chainring!

    So I've googled a whole bunch and even found a thread like this back in 05, but to no avail have I found a good, compatible chainring.

    So right now on my fixed gear, I have some road campy crank arms that are 135 BCD. On it, I have an Origin 8 135/144 track chainring, 44t. I'm trying to upgrade my gearing just a bit while finding a better chainring. However, I can't seem to find any *affordable* 135BCD chainrings that are 46t and 1 1/8 track size.

    Can anyone help a guy in need?

    Thanks though! Any other suggestions?

    It's literally just a circle of aluminum cut by a water jet machine. They're basically all the same these days. Some weigh a tiny bit less, some are a tiny bit more round, but it's really not something worth "upgrading."

    Thank you so much!
    thanks stryper, i feel the regret after ignorantly buying a 144bcd fsa chainring. I might just refund that and not upgrade at all, but that Gebhardt looks nice.

    im dumb, thanks guys

    Never listen to this man. He once spray painted Dura Ace 7600 hubs.

    And yet they rode the exact same while matching my wheels, crazy right? (I'd do it again)
    I've also drilled vintage crank arms, and they haven't broken after a few thousand miles. Drilled a blackspire chain ring too.
    I also ride a carbon road bike fixed, everybody had a fit about that. I have dirt drops on the too BMC, oooh no.
    I used an ISM adamo seat until it wore out, everybody hated that.
    I had a Colossi Superb for a few months, everybody was jelly of that naturally.
    I have a 25mm tire mounted on a 28mm wide rim right now, I'm sure that seems crazy.

    Hey, at least I didn't paint my kitchen celeste back in the super pista days, eh Scrod, eh *wink wink*
    Go ahead and explain the differences between a $70 FSA chainring and a $30 rocket ring for us though, and tell us how in a "blind" test you could feel the difference between the two.

    At least he spray painted them rather than using a brush.

    OMG, I'm defending a big, blue, fluffy monster
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it

    I'm so thankful for the "ignore list" feature on this site.

    A 7005 aluminum chainring will wear longer than a 6061 aluminum chainring. That's obviously a nice feature. You are probably right that nobody could tell the difference in stiffness between the two, but you are still kind of a jackass with a penchant for flaunting your expensive yet questionable taste.

    This summer is the first time I have ever had two bikes a the same time. I almost always sell off previous parts to build up something new. And I always reuse half the parts because I do operate under a budget. The most I've ever spent on a build was ~$1,600. And when have I ever flaunted my bikes? I post them with a description in the "post your ss/fg" thread and that's it.

    On topic, 7075 is 87 and 6061 is 59 on the rockwell B hardness scale, so it would last a good bit longer. May as well wear out your current ring first though.
