    Narrow wide chain rings

    Hi guys, first post, been snooping for a while. Just ordered a Karate monkey complete and would like to change out the chain ring to a 30 or 31T. I can find single speed specific chain rings down to 32T but an obvious lack of 30-31's. See that both Race face and Blackspire have Narrow-wide rings and was wondering if anyone has tried these single speed specific and how well the would work.

    As far as I know there is no advantage (or disadvantage) to using a narrow-wide on a ss.

    I'm running the RaceFace 32 NW and 34 normal. Both work equally well.

    It's impossible to have a NarrowWide in an odd tooth count FYI

    Thanks guys, makes sense that you can't get an odd tooth count now that I think about it. They would have to call it narrow wide wide ! I guess the only advantage to the narrow wide 30T is the availability.
