    So I Need a 33 Tooth Front Chain Ring For a 10 Speed Drivetrain

    My 2011 29er Stumpy FSR Expert needs a new 33 tooth chain ring. I didn't think it would be too tough to find one online but unless I'm missing something they're just not around.

    I'm assuming my dealer could get one but I'm afraid it'll cost $100 or some crazy amount.

    I've searched a lot of the typical online dealers with no luck. No luck on ebay, either

    Anyone have some insight?

    Thanks!

    33T????

    What crankset is this, I've not heard anyone use a 33T apart from a Rotor middle ring, as they need the extra tooth to account for the narrow part of the oval section

    It's from the stock Sram crank set on my 2011 Stumpy FSR 29er. I know I could go with a 32 0r 34 and it wouldn't be a huge deal. I just thought I could find a 33 w/o too much trouble. Guess I was wrong

    33t is the standard SRAM 10 speed triple middle ring. Unfortunately they are very expensive right now to replace.

    Thanks for the input. I emailed Home brewed components & will see if he can help. I'm not married to a 33t ring, I can live with a 32 if the Sram is stupid expensive.
