    Chainring bolts threading on one ring

    Got the chainring I wanted for my SS conversion and the old chainring bolts wont fully thread/seat on just one chainring (old road bike conversion, previously two chainrings). Is there something easy I can do? I only need a couple more turns but they are fully threaded as is.

    Chainring bolts come in 1 ring, 2 ring and 3 ring size. You have the 2 ring size. Check out your LBS or WEB store and buy some 1 ring size.

    Do what has been suggested or go to the LBS and see if they have any spacers, though this option is not as good as scout and akbrad's suggestions.

    with the current bolts, you can use spacers or a bash ring... I used a bashring for some time

    and recently replaced the stock screws with these (cheap - $1 each - and light) https://psyclestore.com/product_info...roducts_id=163
