Hey everyone,

So here's the problem/question. I've got a set of Campy Record (not Pista) crank arms with 135mm BCD (I'm pretty sure that's what it is, does that sound right?). So, the question is: does anyone make track chainrings (1/8" with upper-40's teeth) for "non-track" crank arms? If nobody makes a chainring like that, then does anyone want to trade a track crankset for a 2003 Record double crankset (pictures below)? Thanks for the help.

Matt

From sonic in London, although places like deeside sell them too, miche track cranks are 135mm bcd, so possibly try condor or brixton cycles
