Looking to apparently super rare 52/53T 110BCD Chainring

  1. So I'm wanting to replace my current chainring as it looks very worn (see picture below):


    I've looked all over the Internets, and can hardly find them, either they're out of stock, super expensive, or don't exist. I'd have more luck finding a Unicorn.

    Does anyone know of anywhere that sells them for under £20, I was lucky enough to get my current one for £8 on The Bay, but it worn away like no tomorrow.

    Can you not just replace it with a different brand?
  3. I think there's a lesson in there somewhere. Anyway, 52/3 110bcd rings are hardly rare, so I can't see the problem.
  4. Well they are rare because I can't find many.
  5. Can't find 'many'..? You only need to find one...and there's one right here in the link below. Granted, it's not under £20, but then you already know what happens when you buy cheap rings made of cheese....

    Just buy a new chainset.

    Single rings can sometimes be more expensive than a whole set.
  7. I have a Shimano R700 chainset, I'd be looking for a new one of those for under £30

  9. Screw it, might just hunt through my junk and whack at 50 ring on again, hope it does not cause me too much troubles downgrading from a 52.
  10. it's not a 'downgrade' and other than the time taken to fit it, it won't 'cause you any trouble' - why would it?
  11. Well I'll be spinning out where I would not be before no? What about sprinting?

    Hoho - no strava sections for you. :tongue: What do you have on the back ?
    I run 53 x 13 and only spin out on descents, where it's faster to aero tuck. A 50 x 12 or 11 is bigger than a 53 x 13.

    Try Ribble for their stronglight or TA chain rings - they ain't cheap. You are looking at a minimum of £30 for a big ring.
  13. In the real world, it's unlikely. I race on a 50 and I've not spun out yet - it's good for 40mph if you've got the cadence.

    Only girls have compacts anyway. Your BCD should be 130 Shimano or 135 Campagnolo. Simple !
  15. I'll race you on my compact, Mr Fossy - last one to the finish line is a girl..?
