94 bcd rings for compact double?

I was wondering whats out there for 94 BCD rings? I've got a couple "Microdrive" cranksets that look like they might make good compact doubles. I'm running 7-8 speeds and would like to try 46-30t on the front. Thanks, Woody

Blackspire - here in British Columbia, Canada - still makes 94 bcd double/triple rings. Pretty good range of tooth counts available for their Epic 6/7/8s rings:


Old stock rings from Salsa, Vuelta, RaceFace, Blackspire etc. are relatively available on eBay (and may even be hiding in the chain ring drawer at your local bike shop) since the 5-bolt 94bcd was in wide use at one time but has been largely superseded.

Can get some nice practical combos - I've some 1990s RaceFace Turbine square-taper arms with 44/29 Cannondale Coda rings, chunky CNC retro-cool and very practical gearing for gravel.

Ritchey, Vuelta USA, Real are brands on spares I have. Sorry not selling right now though. I just gave away a couple that had different brands as well (I think one was Salsa) . IRD makes a nice 94 bcd compact crank and not too long ago was on sale at Boulder Bicycle.
