    Help with Crankset

    I would like to change out the crankset on my Kona SS. Being pretty new to this I'm a bit lost. The chain I am using is 3/32.

    How do I know if my 3/32 chain is compatible with this crankset:

    Does not say if the chainring is for 3/32 or 1/8.

    I know if you use a 1/8 chain on some chainrings there is a bit of slop. Are all chainrings 3/32 or are some 1/8?Thanks

    It will be 3/32. Any components designed for a derailleur system will be 3/32.

    You will definitely want to get 3/32 compatible gears going in front and rear. If not it won't pedal out well and wear, fatigue and break.
