I cannot quite tell from the picture but that's the one where the granny bolts on to the middle ring ?

If it is you're stuffed unless you can find the rings somewhere or find and adaptor.


Of course I have a NOS ringset in a box so I can take pictures if you're not convinced of the ram tooth profiling ?

Didnt mean the bike, I meant the replacement crank set?

Thinking long term e.g. if i ever see any spare chain rings etc should i snap them up?

I was meaning probably one of the better selling most popular bikes, so should be plenty of them ;)

I wouldn't bother, I would just buy a new chain set at that point.

Shimano did these rings for only one year. Instead of a 94mm PCD, they went with 95mm.
A classic case of planned obsolescence.
