    Do any bmx chainrings work with an 8-speed chain?

    I'm using a set of Profile cranks on my full suspension bike and need a new front ring. I tried a Deity ring but it wouldnt work with and 8-speed chain. Anybody know one that would? I was thinking of the Poverty Econoline since its cheap and it says its compatible with 3/32" chains, would it work?

    most 3/32 will work with 8 speed chains. you prob tried a diety ss chainring.
    there are a ton of others but nothing as cheap as the poverty

    Thanks thats what I was wondering. The deity sprocket is one of the ss, it was just laying around so it put it on, looks great but too bad it didnt work.

    Just found this:



    I like their tensioner and they're a sponsor of Ray's so I'll probably go with that.

    Heres the bike with the new/used cranks.
