    Smallest 4-bolt SS middle ring?

    Searched and found nothing. Checked the FAQ too. What is the smallest un-ramped/un-pinned middle ring for 4-104 cranks? I think the XC racers running 29-44 doubles are using 5-bolt stuff right? How small can 4-bolt go and who makes it? TIA.

    32 tooth and Surly makes a nice stainless steel one.
    Salsa makes an aluminum one, too.

    Yes, 32T is smallest... Blackspire makes some nice 7075 chainrings too.

    5-bolt "compact" (94mm bcd?) can go a little smaller.
