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.

Replace chainring and cassette?

I currently have a 2x up front on my bike and for the riding here prefer it over a single ring. My big rings teeth are very worn down and have recently slipped off it a few times and been hard to shift into it. My cassette is a little worn but nothing like my chainring. If I replace my big ring ... Read More »

Got Chainring wear?

The blackish one is a steel Bontrager with about 2000 miles on it. The red under is a new Race Face that will not last even close to that long. I knew the old one was worn, but kept running it until it sacked a PC-8 chain in under 300 miles. The Race Face is just a band aid until I find what I r ... Read More »

Chain hitting middle ring ramp when on inner chainring

Just upgraded to a 36t truvativ chainring but still have a small/inner shimano 22t, I went 2x9. When I have it on the 22t inner chainring my chain rubs against the ramps on the 36t. I am wondering if it is a mix and match issue. I put my shimano 32t middle ring back on and don't have this issue, it ... Read More »

Middle chainring in outer position

I've posted similar question before (w/o any response), so I'm going to try to make it more general here. I'm thinking of home brewing my own 22/32 combination. Unfortunately, shimano doesn't make 22 granny cranksets other than the M665 with 22/36. Can I use a middle 32t chainring as an out ... Read More »
