    Help! I can' find a 130 BCD 38 tooth BLACK SS chainring?

    I have researched and can't find a good, high quality (7000 alloy) BLACK (it has to be black) Singlespeed chainring for my 105 crankarms!

    Surly makes a 38 tooth steel but it is silver.
    All-City makes a 39tooth.
    Origin 8 makes a 38 tooth but it is 6000 alloy.

    What other botique brands will have what I need! Thanks in advance.

    Nice! Thorne makes one...Anyone know the alloy material?

    The THORNE Koksijde chainring as no offset, no ramps or pins. Compatible with 8, 9, and 10 speed. Chainrings are black. Made in the USA.

    I called the shop (really nice guy) who said he was pretty sure it was a 7000 series alloy. I can't find any information on this ring.

    All 38T 130bcd rings are SS compatible as long as they're for a double. No ramps or pins on the granny ring. I would recommend a Salsa. 7075-T6 aluminum. Cheap and easy to get.

    Yeah, no ramps or pins. I'm running it on my cross bike right now with no problems.

    The only problem is I need a black one. I considered the Salsa for the quality/price/etc but it only is silver.

    I've got a FSA pro chainring on my SS roadbike--it's 7005 Al, pin-free, mostly black (teeth are silver) and comes in 130bcd, 38t. $34 on eBay.

    Buy a silver Salsa and:
    1. acid etch bath (i use CLR=Calcium/Lime/Rust, )
    2. De-grease it (i use Simple Green)
    3. Spray it w/Self etching primer, then spray-paint it black...or...send your local powder coaters.

    sodium hydroxide (lye, or a strong drain opener) works best for removing anodizing

    Race Face DH (and maybe other models)... 7075-T6 and comes in black.

    Works for me, 38-tooth.

    Edit: Oh, may not come in 130 though.

    Or ride the bike a lot and it won't matter because of the dirt and grease.
