    preffered bolt get for ss chainring on crank

    Hi Guys/Gals

    I am in process of ordering some parts. I would like to mount a 32t 5 bolt (94 mm bc) to some cranks. I am looking at the salsa chainrings. I used the search function but could not find . . . Did not some one mention a "flush chain ring bolt set" for a cleaner install. I ride mostly xc so I was not going to mount a bashring.


    Thanks

    You can use BMX or track chainring bolts. They're just like bolts for double ring setups only shorter. Any LBS should have them.

    Torx head single ring bolts?

    I have seen torx head bolts for triple ring set ups, like these:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/FSA-Torx-Triple-...QQcmdZViewItem

    Is the same thing available in a single ring option?

    I also seem to remember hearing about a chainring bolt that has something besides the slotted back nut, anyone know where you can score these?

    I have a set of ring bolts where the nut back is hex shaped like a regular bolt head (an "outtie" not an "innie," if that makes sense). Anyway, I don't remember where I got them but they're cool. Wish I knew how to get some more. I don't like the standard slotted-back nut design as much for SS use.
