Inexpensive 110mm Ramped/Pinned Chainrings

I'm getting new chainrings for my tandem and want ramps/pins since my partner and I aren't the smoothest shifters. It's going to be an 8 speed 26/38/52 setup (or 26/40/53 or 26/40/54 if I can find a reasonably priced 53 or 54).

Where can I find reasonably priced ramped and pinned chainrings that are 110mm?

Well if your willing to go down to 52 you will end up paying significantly less 53/54 aren't real common 110 with ramps and pins. If you want to go with 26/40/54 ramped and pinned it may actually be more cost effective to buy a whole compact modern crankeset good used or new than buying each of the rings.

I would go with a 26/39/52. What exactly do you think you will get out of the 54? If you use a 11t lock ring on the cassette, you should have plenty of top end even with the 52.

Its best to buy a set of matching middle and big rings. For example, mix-matching a 39t FSA and a 52t Shimano chainring means that the shifting gates and assists might not line up properly and shifting won't be as smooth as it could be if you had matching pairs.

Just may not be as inexpensive as you hoped.

machined 7075 aluminum wears longer, so you will get more miles out of them .

This Stronglight tandem crank comes stock with 51/39/30 chainrings and a 110 BCD, and it appears as though you can swap out rings for a small additional fee as well: http://www.spacycles.co.uk/products....id=m2b2s109p15

Stronglight does make a 110 BCD 53T chainring too: http://www.spacycles.co.uk/products....d=m2b2s149p296

Any cheap, flat 26T chainring will do the trick for the rest.
