    RaceFace Wide/Narrow Rings Availability

    Does anybody know when these will be available and approximate cost? I emailed RaceFace, no word back yet. I'd really like a green one for my Trigger 29er1.

    I hear they should start shipping 36/38 in early June, and 32/34/30 by July. I do not know cost but if I had to guess, somewhere between $50-$75. No idea if all colors will be available either.

    I almost posted a new thread to ask about these. Good thing the search function is working.
    I'm also interested if anyone has had a chance to ride these. I've just converted to 1x10 from SS and am thinking of getting a 32-t.

    Bikeradar said about $40-50 each here:
    Race Face Stepped Chainrings For 1x Drivetrains - BikeRadar

    Just saw this
    Wiggle | Race Face Single Chainring Narrow Wide 32/34 | Chainrings

    That's approximately USD55. Not bad.

    None in stock yet though

    Do you currently have a 32t for your middle ring? try riding your trails with only using the middle ring and see how it feels. If you need more climbing power go with a 30t, if you need more top speed go with a 34,36, 38. If it feels just right, get a 32.

    I ordered a red 32t from Art's Cyclery a couple weeks ago. I then got a message saying it's out of stock and was due last week of September. Then last week another message said they won't be available until 17October. I'm seriously considering changing my order to a black one, but I really want the red

    Darnit. I missed that extra 5% off. I placed an order for a 2nd ring 2 days ago using the 15% off discount

    Installed it today. I almost got the black one since Art's Cyclery had the red back ordered. I'm sooo glad I waited as the red is really nice.

    Lookin good! You're spot on with the red, ties in nicely with the subtle nipples and frame stickers. Speaking of, what frame is that? I see the 'S' on the downtube and thinking Spot, but then the chain stay sticker has me thinking Schwinn. Am I close?
    Also, it looks like you aren't running a clutch der, how is that working out so far?
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    Oh how I wish it was a Spot!
    Alas, it's a humble 2001 Schwinn Moab 3
    I have a Zee (FR) derailleur, so yes it has a clutch. Lovin' the short cage!
    I'm quite impressed by the way the chain ring meshes and holds on to the chain. Perfect fit!
