what are these number on the inside of the chain ring
On the inside of the chainring there are some numbers,
I have a couple of questions, appreciate the help.
1. in the lower right of the picture on the small chainring it says " 24-36 only". I have a 38 large ring, is this related at all?
2. It says "sram chain only" what does that mean? It is a brand name 2013 bike and it doesn't have a scram chain.
What is the size of the inner chain ring? Is a 24 tooth? If so, then Sram optimized that 24 tooth chain ring to work with a 26 tooth outer ring.
As for the "sram chain only" it's for warranty purposes. Manufacturers of components (Shimano/Sram/Campy (road only)) only recommend their brand chains for use on their products. But as we all know, they work just fine.
Bike manufacturers will put on chains of different brands to maximize their profits. Usually a heavier chain (lower model on the hierarchy scale). KMC is a very popular chain used by bike manufacturers. Especially when they are mix/matching drivetrain parts.
It is a 24 inner chain ring, the outside ring is a 38. Should I either get a smaller outerring or bigger inner ring? It shifts fine but I have been thinking that the small chain ring is too small.
Re: what are these number on the inside of the chain ring
Question is do you need the 24t ring? If you do, and it shifts fine, leave it alone. If you can run a 26t without issues, then switch it out .
