    Replacement Chainring

    This is an unashamed plug for Johnny B and Cycle Underground!

    I have been chewing chains out too quick on the Gefsco lately and the Campy chainring came up as the main culprit. Getting worn and didn't help that it is 3/32.

    I wanted to retain the look and the new job came up better than the original - cleaner finish and way better drilling geometry! Check the pic - try to overlook my "almost" polish job and photography!




    Chainrings - buy local!!

    did you have to specifically ask for the small holes drilled around the circumference?

    You're obviously happy with the quality, but whats the verdict on the road?

    Re: Replacement Chainring

    This is exactly what Ive been looking for! My friend has a Sugino drilled one, and I want a 151BCD size, as well as less teeth than my current one.

    What extra stuff did you have to ask for? And did it cost extra? I hope you don't mind me biting your idea, but Ive been looking for this for ages!

    Re: Replacement Chainring

    Their chainrings appear to be SS-specific "Because our chainrings are not designed for front gear changes our tooth profile is thicker we have less of a chamfer (less of the corner is machined away.)"

    Do they do a derailleur-specific tooth profile as well or is the difference trivial on a geared chainset? I want a couple of unusual chainrings and CU's ones are cheaper, easier to obtain and sound like a better option.

    Re: Replacement Chainring

    I listed everything I wanted with Johnny by an exchange of emails and he sent it up, easy as that.

    Suggest you each do the same, you will find him realy helpful, have at it!

    I am away in Victoria freezing my nuts off and have only ridden it briefly, initial impressions are very favourable, I am pretty fussy about drivetrain noise and feel. The Phil cog is way noisier. Still have to pedal up hills, tho ... and down, now that I think of it!!
