Where to get a 52t chainring??

I want to try and get a 1/8 52t 130bcd chainring, for a decent price. I have no idea where to look. I'm beginning to think that 130 isn't a common size for these. I dunno.

Any links or info would be appreciated. Thanks.

He said he wants 1/8 though, the salsa rings are 3/32. That being said, plenty of people (myself included) run 3/32 rings with 1/8 chains and cogs to ill effect. 52t 3/32 rings are one of the most common ring sizes, you would have tons of options.

I need to learn to read better. Good catch.

In that case, a mighty no name chainring from ebay will do. 9 dollars out of pocket. Cannot beat that. If it doesn't hold up, I'll get myself a better one. Thanks yo.

1/8" 130bcd chainrings are definitely rare. Alize is one of maybe (?) 3 and I forget the other two.

The TA and Sugino Messenger rings are easy to get. There are not tons of brands, but I would call them rare exactly.

I forgot about the messenger chainrings. A decent road ring is still cheaper though. Just get something with no ramps or pins.
