    Mojo with SLX cranks

    I've had my bike a few seasons now and each year here in Tahoe, in about June, I'd like to replace my middle ring with a 34 or 36 (I run bash/32/22). The problem I can't find a larger middle ring for the 3x10 Shimano. I tried a raceface for a few days and threw chains repeatedly. I will upgrade to a 2x10 some day but can't afford the expense right now. (I like the e13 TRS cranks for the $$$!) I've looked at blackspire chainrings on their website but it confuses me.

    Any advice on a company or chainring that solves this issue? I'm an idiot when it comes to BCD, size, width, blah, blah. I pedal, it goes...

    Thanks

    You need a four bolt 104 BCD ramped chainring. An SLX M660 36T chainring is readily available, i.e. here: Shimano SLX M660 Middle Chainrings from BikeBling.com
    There is no physical difference between 9sp and 10sp chainrings. The inner width of 9 and 10sp chains is the same.

    Oh, I thought there was a difference between 9 and 10sp. I'm now informed. Thanks so much StiHacka. Done.

    Cheers
