    10 Speed Chain Rings Not Available?

    What a crock. I've spent three days searching for a replacement 33 tooth chain ring for my 2011 Stumpy FSR 29er with a SRAM 10 speed drive train. Nothing to be had. Anywhere. Even the shop where I bought the bike is coming up short.

    So, maybe I'm an idiot but it seems like a person should be able to find a 104 BCD 10 speed chain ring in 32, 33, or 34 tooth. I'd take any of the above!

    Am I missing something obvious?

    I'm running a 9-speed chainring with a 10-speed chain and I haven't noticed any issues.

    It's a 1x10 setup though so I dunno about 2x or 3x setups.

    Yeah, my rig is a 2x10 so I need a ramped & pinned ring. I'm reading in a few places that 9 speed rings will work with my 10 speed system.

    Ramps and pins are not needed for shifting.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Anyone out there running a 9spd chain ring for a 10spd 2x10 setup? I'm getting a new X-Cal on Monday and it has the SRAM S1000, 44/32/22. I ordered a 36t bash and want to get a 36t middle chain ring, the 10spd specific chain rings are ridiculously overpriced though.
