    Sourcing 74/110 chainrings

    Hi everyone, Does anyone here have a suggestion about where to get good quality, new 74/110 chainrings? My old ones are fried, and it's time to replace them, and I see no good, affordable option. The cheapest thing I saw was buying a Sugino crankset to cannibalize the rings, which ended up being 150 bucks or so plus shipping. Can anyone offer a suggestion? Tim

    Rotor makes some cool 74/110 chainrings. Even oval like the good old days only better....
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    just ordered a 36 and a 48 tooth Sugino off of Amazon. 22 bucks for the 36 and 30 dollars for the 48.
    Also noticed that the 3 ring set (24/36/50?) was $110.
    Looked at Harris Cyclery/Jenson/couple of others, and had some success, but the prices were significantly higher.
    If you want to stay away from aluminum, Salsa makes 110 BCD stainless in several ring sizes, but twice as nice for twice the price.

    Your LBS should be able to help you out, Tim. If the kid just stares at you when you ask, tell him/her to get out the QBP catalog and you'll show them what you need.

    Blackspire still makes them. They have the Pro version which is 7/8 speed and the Superpro which is 9/10 speed.

    Uphiller, go with the Blackspires is my opinion. I have Sugino rings also, and the Blackspire are way thicker and stronger, at least the outer 44s are. I bought a pair two years back and love 'em so far.

    Suginos are good too, just a lot thinner and easier to bend than Blackspires.
    Good friction shifting is getting hard to find nowadays....
