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.

xx1 crank & chainring with a zee derailleur for a chainguideless 1x10 setup?

Hey, I'm running SS atm with an XX1 crankset and a Wolftooth chainring. I'd like to go 1x10 for the time being with a Zee derailleur/shifter, my original 32t XX1 chainring and a 11-36 casette. Without chainguide. Would that be a compatible combination?Read More »

1x10 chainring lifespan?

Just wondering if anybody had an idea what a ballpark number mileage-wise should a single chainring last. My current one is starting to "sharkfin" a bit and since I'm replacing the chain and cassette it's getting replaced too. The chainring has 911miles on it. Does that seem like a decent lifespa ...

Single (1x10) Chainring Options (Wolf tooth, Race Face, etc)

So, this single chainring aftermarket is heating up with Wolf Tooth, RF, Absolute, etc., now in the market. Are there any design/production/quality difference among these products? What makes WT's chainrings different from those of RaceFace? Just curious.Read More »
