HomeBrewed Components Chainring Chainring

2/5 (7 Reviews)
MSRP : $35.00

Product Description

These chainrings are fully CNC machined from high quality 7075-T6 aluminum and held to tight tolerances, producing a ROUND chainring. These are also one of the lightest chainrings on the market weighing in at 31g for a 32t 104bcd. The lightening pockets are fully radiused resulting in a light AND strong ring. They are fully reversible and symmetric so when one side wears out, just flip it over and you're good to go! The pockets are also on both sides.

Strengths:    See Below

Weaknesses:    See Below

Bottom Line:   
I placed my order on May 12, 2012 (not a type-o). I finally received the chain ring on June 2, 2013. It is light (29g) if your willing to wait. To be honest I forgot I even purchased the chainring when it finally showed up. Since the bolt holes are not shaved I have to buy longer chainring bolts before I try out the new ring. I never received any form of communication from Daniel the owner of HomeBrewed Components. Be patient but it will show up is all I can say.

Strengths:    Ha! Looks like several others have had the same experience I did. I paid him on May 7, 2012. The payment was drafted from my bank on May 9, 2012. It is now Sept 10, 2012. He replied to emails until about July. When I went to Google to have them mediate the transaction they told me it had been more than 90 days and they could not help me. Seriously this guy is a crook. Obviously others have had the same experience.

Weaknesses:    The guy takes your money and doesn't send you his product.

Bottom Line:   
See above.

Spider thickness is .15" (3.8mm) and the chainring I'm buying is 3mm (.125") thick. Total thickness of ~6.8mm to 7mm. How much engagement o ... Read More »

Changing Specialized Epic WC front chainring is it possible?

Is it possible to change the front chain ring to a double? I keep seeing good deals pop up on these bikes but only the 1x wc versions. I would love to try 1x, but I am concerned that I would want to go to a 2x10 at some point for some races.Read More »

Non spanner single-ring chainring nuts?

I'm trying to rid my crankset of the bashguard that came on it and will sensibly need new, narrower chainring fasteners. Specifically, I'm looking for the nut side that is held by a hex, rather than spanner. I know many will be tempted to mock me for my inability to make a chainring bolt spanner wr ... Read More »
