Last winter I got a 175mm SS Sugino crankset. It came with a 48T that isn't even 3/32. WTF. It's like a 9 speed baby rattle!!!
I have been using a White Ind. set up for 6 years. I thought they were 1/8", no such luck, at least a full 3/32".
This is for a Rohloff heavyweight and a SA XL-RD5w I just restored to good shifting.

Can I trust these suppliers to sell actual 1/8" ???
Is TA Alize better than a cheaper Sugino one?

And while I'm at it, What's the deal with wolf tooth?? Supposedly alternating 1/8" and 3/32". Won't the teeth wear unevenly? Are they I good idea?

Wolf Tooth chain rings are designed for geared, 1X drive trains. They help prevent the chain from slipping off of the ring.

Looks like shipping is closed from the US from Ben's and with USPS anyway. I found the Sugino part at Ben's cycle online.
Canadian sites don't seem to have direct online sales.
I'll have to find Europe or start e-mailing.

So I just ordered a 44T and 46T silver Gebhardt rings, from VeloSolo in UK, $131.5 Cdn. Shipping is only 14 Gbp, so who knows when it will get here.
Performance shipping from Beaverton was near $50, Pffft. And they only had a 46T.
Are these as good as Sugino? The Gebharts look stronger with a solid 1" band of metal.
My White Ind cranks have 24,000 miles and the hole is wearing crooked now. And it's dragging my DIY CF chaincase.
Maybe I can make the opening smaller now. It's 6 damn inches now.
I was thinking Surly had 1/8" steel, but it appears not.
