I got one of mine without having to sign, the other one I had to sign for it. Not sure why the difference as they were shipped the same way, but the local post office handled them differently.

Just installed the chainring and it looks great.

But, I have a Shimano XT 2x10 crank and was running a SRAM PC1 chain and on the narrow part of the chainring, it's rubbing. I'm figuring I will need a narrower chain, but am not sure which type of chain I can should get 8, 9 or 10 speed.

Anyone else experience this problem and which chain worked best?

Thanks.

You may need some chainring spacers, to move it away from the crank. This will also give you a better chainline!

Yes, 32T. So I should be good with a 9 speed chain. Thanks!
I would suggest a decent 8 speed chain from SRAM. They are stronger and cheaper than the 9 speed versions. That's all I run and have had great luck. I tried a PC1 once, never again!

I'm not sure how close it is, but the 9 speed will be a little narrower and may give you more clearance.

The 8 speed is too wide for the gap between the ring and crank arm.

I've got a Kona single speed I would like to put these sprockets on. Right now I'm geared 36-18 and would like to know what the biggest front sprocket is I can buy, then I can figure out what rear wheel sprocket I need. Will the rear sprockets fit my rear wheel? I just got this bike, I've been riding cruisers, not very familiar with this style bike. Thanks for any help, Dave.

The 34t front and a 17 rear would have a similar feel.
I would try with just adding the 34 first.
I'm running 32/21 on my Unit, but it's geared for the hills.

Got my 34 and 32 direct from AbsoluteBlack. The rear cogs from the local bike shop.

Any one receive they're February 5th shipment on the east coast? I got the shipping notice with an invalid tracking number. I can understand some delay with weather, but this is starting to get ridiculous.
