    building my first ss: chain issues

    Got an Azonic Steelhead and am putting a 410 seatrpost in it to make it serve as my ss. I've got a single speed cog in the back with spacers that fits an 8 speed chain I have. I bought a bmx chainring for cheap but once I got it on, it doesn't fit the 8 speed chain. Should I seek a new front chainring or a new chain?

    1/8" chain on 3/32" parts can be noisey, and will wear faster than parts that all fit together.

    What kind of cog are you running in the back? With the BMX chainwheel, you should probably be running a 1/2 x 1/8(wider) BMX/singlespeed type chain Like a sram pc1 or pc7x.
