    Default Smaller Big Rings.

    I want to replace the 54T big ring on a 2010 Chorus compact 11sp setup with a 44T. I made a similar change on a 2007 Dura-Ace compact 10sp bike and loved the results. I used a Salsa 110mm ring for the job.

    It would appear that Salsa is out or the chainring game and I can't seem to find any of their similar rings out there.

    Who else makes such an item in black?

    Thanks.

    Mike D.

    I'm not sure where you're getting a 110mm BCD crankset with a 54t outer ring, but Stronglight makes a 48t outer ring for a Campagnolo compact setup called the Nerius 11: http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/chainrings.asp

    Mike Zanconato also made some smaller 'cross rings for Campagnolo compact cranks, but I'm pretty sure they were all silver. You might contact him and check, though.

    Those are the only two options I know of that don't involve a Dremel.

    Specialties TA makes a bunch of rings, and starbike.com usually has them, but the smallest outer I see is a 48T, either at Starbike or Wiggle. Camapag does make a 46T outer on the CX crankset, but likely cost around a billion dollars.

    i run a 50t on my davidson commuter, TA, that ring is alright

    got a nice 39t ring from gebhardt that wasn't too much money, black except where it was machined
    only thing that sucks was it took a while to receive, because custom order...

    Sorry, I was typing a bit too fast. The current outer ring is the standard 50T for a compact. Oooops.

    In the Campagnolo-specific BCD? Got a link?

    Oops--sorry; I was reading too fast. While Campy compact is 110, they use their stupid proprietary bolt hole to keep rational people from adapting their products to their needs.

    Consult the dropdown menu. I have purchased 2 TA rings from these guys and would have #3 if they offered the 46t TA in 110bcd.

    Specialties TA Inner Cross Rings

    Whoops, sorry, forgot about the compact requirement. I know they offer 135bcd. They answer email pretty fast too.

    That TA stuff is nice. I've used their rings for cross before. Have a 50t that I need to sell now that the DA stuff is coming with this option. Long live Shimano.

    Stronglight makes some nice Campy 110 chainrings. My commuter has a 48 big ring which is perfect for 90% of the ride. I had to order mine from overseas since the LBS wouldn't or couldn't get them.

    Harris Cyclery used to offer lots of TA rings. I run a 44-30 on a 110-74 triple set-up as double with rings bought from them.

    Middleburn rings are good too.

    Check out Blackspire.

    I had one of their rings on a single-speed. Didn't love the graphics but the quality was excellent.

    It was easier to me to go to 50/36 and 12-27 cassette (or 12-29). The change is great because 50x21 and some other combinations like 36x15 are much more usable. Easy to get ahold of a 10-speed 36T ring, it's cheaper than the outer ring, and no worries about changing pins/ramps/FD position.

    For going below a 50t on Campy compacts, your options are pretty limited to the TA NERIUS 11 Chainrings or Zanc's rings because Campy has a proprietary 110 offset bcd just to fuck with you. Campy's CX rings are another option as well but none too cheap.

    Best way might be to sell the campy crank. They delibarately fucked up the 110bcd standard. A 94mm double Spécialités TA carmina is what you need.

    On my Campy cross build for my Landshark, I went with a Shimano compact crank and FSA rings. Plays well with my Campy 10 setup. Didn't want to screw around with the expense of a Campy CX specific crankset or hunting down new rings for a 110bcd Campy crank. I had a Shimano R700 crank in the parts bin, so was it was an easier decision. Plus the Shimano Hollowtech bb is just plain better IMHO than either ultratorque or powertorque for playing in the dirt.
