    Running a 10 speed chainring SS

    im trying to get a smaller chainring for my dj, never replaced a chainring before. if i buy a 10 speed chainring(raceface turbine), will it work as a single speed chainring? i know its best to run narrow wide, but will a 10 speed still work?

    thanks all

    That should work fine, regardless whether it has pins or not. So long as your chainline is ok, and everything is tensioned ok, you shouldn't be dropping any chains.

    Like you already said yourself, obviously for a single speed, you'd be better off with a single narrow/wide ring from raceface, but both will work.

    Are you running a singlespeed chain or a chain for gears?

    That chain will do the job fine then.

    If you're buying new anyway, why not just get the N/W?
