50T Outer chain ring replacement - recommendations

Postby MichaelB » Mon Oct 23, 2017 12:58 pm

I've now put well over 20,000km on my Praxis Works outer chain ring, and whilst it's still going OK, it's time to start keeping a lookout for replacement options, so that when a bargain pops up, I can grab it.

The cranks that I have are 2012 S-Works carbon arms on a 5 bolt compact (110 BCD) spider.

I have seen some of the older Shimano options such as 5750 available for around the $50 mark, and know Shimano are good shifting.

The Praxis Works ones are good, but exxy to replace, and aren't on special all that often.

Any suggestions ? Or spares lying about ?

Oh, yes, 5700 gear is 10sp and I'm running 11sp, but that shouldn't be an issue.

I recently fitted Blackspire road chainrings to a friend's 5800 cranks.
They're nice looking, perform well, he's had no complaints after a couple of weeks use.
No idea where he bought them nor how much.

I've been running a 42T Thorn for about a year and for the past month a 52T Gebhardt on 10 speed gear. No pins or ramps, shifting is quite nice but then I use downtube shifters. Both look bombproof. SJS Cycles do Thorn, they are pretty pricey but well worth it if you can get a couple of years out of it.

I’ve spied an Absolute Black oval one for $73 ( which is about 40% off) so May try that.
I’ve got 4 1/2 Year’s from the Praxis so far !!
