    1/8 inch vs 3/32 Compatibility?

    I just took delivery of some sweet Middleburn cranks with the single ring in the front. I went to put the chain on the ring and it didn't fit. Turns out the ring is 1/8 inch.

    Can I run a 1/8" ring and chain with a 3/32" Endless cog in the back?
    Dirtbag since '89

    No Problemo. Maybe a little more noise from the cog?
    The 1/8 chain are wider than 3/32, so you cannot use 3/32 chain because your chainring
    is 1/8 wide. FYI.
