    chainring 46 with medium 32 .road derailleur?

    On my bike I use plates 44 32 and casete 11 34. I would like to put a 46 or 48 retaining the 32.
    Are there any bike derailleur for these chainrings?

    Why do you need a 46/48 tooth chainring? I wouldn't imagine you'd get much use out of that off road.
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    Just because I want a bigger chainring and have more development.
    The shimano xt few years ago we manufactured in 46 as an option

    46x11.... so you can comfortably pedal 90 rpm as you cruise at 30mph....

    Wow, way to exactly say the same thing word for word that I said in the 2nd post. Try to be a little bit original would you.

    727, if you are set on such a large chainring, then Shimano do make a XT trekking series range of components that would suite you.
    Here - Deore XT

    Bicycle manufacturers outfitting a few years ago (44 in the largest chainring) at most. To this day it has gone to 42 in most of them.
    I think it's maybe a big chainring, long time to upload these sprockets
