    Chainrings for my Raceface Chester cranks. ( 10 speed )

    Am I limited to Raceface chainrings ( Turbine ) for my Chester cranks??
    In the parts bin I have a shimano 10 speed outer 42 tooth ring and a middleburn inner ring.
    Could these be used in combination with with a new middle ring? Can other brands be used with
    raceface cranks? Suggestions? Options? Thanks.

    The biggest problem with mismatched chainrings is shifting performance,
    Spacing even if correct, (which is very possible) may not result in shifts at your earliest convenience.

    If all you want to do is see if that ratio is good for you - go for it, it's just a few mins to swap rings.
    If they shift poorly you still can remain in the appropriate gear and see if they give you the correct range.
    Cheaper than buying new rings only to find out they are too tall or too short in the ratio's
