    Shimano XTR M952 crank/chainring compatability

    I own a Shimano XTR (older style) M952 tripple crankset with 4-arm spyder. I am in need of new middle and granny chainring as they are worn. Big chainring is fine as they don't get used often. Question is, since chainring for M952 cranset is hard to come by, what other brand/model/type middle and granny chainring other that Shimano XTR can I use it for replacement? Thx.

    I believe any 4 bolt standard ring will fit the older XTR. Keep in mind the 952 used standard size rings (34-24) which are not that easy to find now that compact 4 bolt is more standard.

    I am not sure the what the diff. between standard & compact size ring are. If I accidently got compact middle & granny ring instaed of standard, they won't fit into my XTR M952 crankset with orignal leftover large chainring? Thx.

    The bolt pattern is 112mm/68mm optimized for the 34T and 24T. You can get them in Salsa and possibly Black Spire (used to make them anyway).

    For example...

    The granny might be a bit tougher. I can't find that one right now. You might have better luck with some Googling.
