I am not sure that you can get a 44 tooth chain ring on a 130 mm bolt circle. You might need a 110 mm bolt circle for a 44 tooth chain ring.

Yes. This thing would have to puncture the tire and go completely into the tube. Given its size and hooked end, that seems implausible.

Pretty good question, though!
