    Steel 40/41t rings without ramps/pins? Or worst case Alu

    So i have an 8sp setup, 8sp spacing, cogs and chains and such and now i'm kinda looking for either a steel 5bolt ring in 40/41t size for that drivetrain. Or get a 4bolt crank and a steel 40/41t chainring for that one. I don't want 11/10/9sp stuff i want thicker stock made for 8sp chains. Preferably 5bolt since I have a 5 bolt cranks. and if thats not possible i have to get a 4bolt crank.

    What do you guys recommend? Before I had a 36t shimano 9sp ring up front and while that was nice I'm now stepping up the game.
    And this time i want no ramps and pins (and 8sp compatible/optimal).

    What about alu? Its for my commuter so I prefer to buy the longest lasting stuff out there, if possible.

    depending on your BCD you could see if middleburn make one..it'll be alloy though. I use their standard ring which has no ramps or pins. some cranks are hard to find stuff for, so you need to work out your bcd

    I have the standard road triple one, non compact,non double, i think its 5x130. However I'm not 100% sure it will work out on my frame yet. its a dura ace triple.
