    Need 42T outer for Triple

    My wife has a Suntour crank with a 42/32/22, 8 speed, 104 bcd.

    My daughter has a Truvative E400 crank with a 44/32/22, 9 speed bcd.

    What replacement outer 42 chainring could I use for my wife's bike and could I use a 42 chainring for my daughter's bike and if so what kind?

    Thanks
    Bill

    TruVativ TruShift Steel chainring 4, 104mm bolt circle 42t, 8/9-speed, black I found out I need to contact my lbs to get the Suntour Chainring. I think I got it? Right?
    Thanks

    I can't say much about the Suntours without a model number but any standard 4 bolt ring w/the right BCD will fit the Truvativ set. You don't necessarily have to go with a truvativ ring as a replacement.

    I suggest you have a chat with your LBS though. Many guys replace 42t rings with bash guards. And a lot of those 42t rings are nearly new and worthless to the original owner, so they get left behind at the shop. If you do a fair amount of business at the LBS, ask if they have any take-offs laying around, they may sell it to you for a steep discount.
