    Cheap, long lasting (steel?) 32t singlespeed chainring

    Are there any? i'm looking for one for my holzfellers and all i could find was a surley one for $30 and not from a website that i've heard of before (Speedgoat?)

    do i have other options?
    EDIT: found the same one on jenson, but is that the cheapest?

    I'm a big fan of my Salsa chainring after bending my Surly.

    Speedgoat is a reputable shop, I've purchased plenty of stuff from them and found them to be good people to deal with.

    As for a steel chainring, I haven't had the experience myself but have read accounts on the forum of folks who've bent them. I haven't heard of this happening with an aluminum ring.

    Have you considered getting a ring from Homebrewed (ISAR)?

    The Homebrewed steel rings look the burliest. I used to own a surly ring, and while it certainly did have lon lasting tooth profiles, it was way too easy to bend. Before the surly ring, the only other rings I had folded from pedaling were steel granny rings(while riding trials). Aluminum lasts long enough up front, and appears to be more impact resistant by weight.

    I have bikes set up with Surly rings and also a Middleburn Uno.

    With the Surly rings I run a polycarbonate chain protector, but I can't with the Uno. I reckon although the Uno chainring is stiffer, the setup with the Surly ring and protector would be better able to take an impact.

    I'm a Spot man, myself. I do run a guard though. Big teeth, no ramps.

    Well, sombody is sending me one for the price of shipping, we'll see how it works out! I also run a bash and i did consider a Homebrew, but i'm looking for super long lasting until i get a job, then it will be ISAR all the way around!

    Thanks for the replies, good to know that speedgoat is good!
