I recently picked up an LX crank and 4-bolt, 32 tooth Surly SS chainring. No bash ring. Going over a log today I bent it about 3/8" out of line between 2 bolts. I bashed it with a rock a few times and it seemed to pop back into shape... looks like it's still out by maybe 1/32".
Has anyone continued to ride a chain ring after such a repair? Since it's steel I feel like it should be OK but I'm wondering if it's worth risking a failure down the line. I have a bash ring off a Stylo I may throw on to protect the ring in the future.
