I'm after a 39tooth ring.

Budget new ones seem to be about a tenner, but if anyone has either something nice at that price, or anything with plenty of life left for less then I'm interested.

Preferably without any silly ramps/pins etc, but not too fussy.

Cheers,

Si F

FWIW, Sheldon quotes 38 as the smallest 130 BCD ring.

Yep, still made by Stronglight, TA etc. Spa Cycles sell them new. I've got a couple - and they make all the difference over a 39 when you're not very fit!

Tell me about it, Ned. I grovelled up a local 'biggie' down here (Kingston Blount) with a 53/38 (inner ring, of course) and was offered a compact 48/34 as a straight swap.

Nearly bit the blokes hand off! :D

I'm old and slow enough to settle for a 5-tooth drop on both rings from the standard 53/39 pro set-up but am still mystified as to why 4th and 3rd cat. riders still go with the 53/39 set-up when riding at three-quarters of the speed! :?

Cheers Guys.

Anyone got one for sale though? 38 or 39 would be fine.

Also, if not, am I better getting a Stronglight dural one over Shimano Sora or tiagra?

Ta,
