chainring swap help on Omniums

Thinking about swapping the stock omnium chainring for a Sugino Zen racing chainring. My questions are: Am I going to have problems installing the zen? Do I need to purchase new bolts? Any help is much appreciated.

I don't think you will have any problem swapping them out. You should buy a chainring nut wrench if you don't have one.

Omnium

omnium chainring is 5mm thick.
could possibley need new bolts, depending on new chainring being used.
