Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

What do you think of this chainring?

Well as a former BMX rider i was looking on Danscomp.com and found this:

https://www.danscomp.com/459030.php

It appears to be a rocket chainring unbranded. Anyone know if this would work on a ss/fixed gear? I am assuming it will. I am looking to maybe get one for my ss which has shimano 105 cranks (130mm BCD). For the price it seems really good $13.99. Input welcome

I was looking at that too and I think the second set of holes may be 130, it would just be a matter of someone actually getting one, or calling dans which I don't think would actually net you any facts.

Measure it on your screen. Law of proportion.
So yeah, the 2nd set is 130. It's also 3/32"

They work fine. They wear pretty quickly, but it's a cheap ring.

cheap is good wearing quick is not. I think it'd be something i'd have around for a backup or just to have in the parts box.
