    Default Modern 5 bolt 130BCD 11s chainrings

    I've got an old 7900 SRM that needs new batteries. The bike needs a new chain. Cables have had it. Okay - so time for a refresh. I reckon I may just replace all the consumable stuff in one fell swoop. That's like 80% of the new bike feeling right there.

    What are you guys in the know running for 11s chainring setups if you have a 130BCD spider? Should I just get the original DA 7900 10s rings? They seemed to work fine with my otherwise 11s setup.

    i'd get 7900. but they'd probably cost as much as a new SRM. in 53/39 config, i've always opted for Yaw or Praxis.

    Praxis chainrings shift incredibly well.

    Chainring spacing is always built into the crank spider (at least, I can't think of an example where it's not).

    Campagnolo gets close, but really: no one can beat Shimano front shifting. Just get new, stock Shimano chainrings.
