    I run a Surly 36t on my old 736 Shimano XT's. 5x94 bolt circle. Not sure who else makes a 36 though. I've never had a problem getting rings in that bolt pattern.

    AE Bike has 'em. There are a few typos on the linked page but read the "Item Specifications" box and you'll find truth.

    Looks like Salsa might still make a silver 36 t / 94 mm ring, but I can't find any for sale online.

    I've been using one of these for a few years with no problems. Hopefully I can find another when it wears out...
