    chain not fitting with chainring

    I finally got all the parts to put together my 29er SS. I have a cyclone (don't remember the manufacturer) crank and a sram chain. The problem is the spacing on the chainring seems to be too big. and the chain won't seat on it. both chain and chainring are new so wear is not an issue. could this chainring maybe be some wierd size? or maybe a road chainring (if they are not the same?)?

    Sounds like you have a 1/8" chainring and the rest of your drivetrain is 3/32". 1/8" is the Track/BMX standard while 3/32" is the standard for multi-gear bikes and most SS conversions
