close ratio cyclocross chainrings with ramps and pins for excellent shifting performance

Perhaps better known for his custom bicycles, Mike Zanconato gave us a little sneak peek at his latest “side” project: Close-ratio, high-end chainrings specifically for cyclocross. In his words:

I started the project because I was pissed that there weren’t many cyclocross chainring options for Campy riders. I also wanted to offer some tighter gearing options (38/44, 36/42) and smaller outer rings (42 and 44) that actually had shift pins and ramps. I figured while I’m at it, I should do 110 bcd too (130 and 135 bcd are also in the works).

Hmmm…SRAM and Shimano are 130 BCD, so if the images above and below are any indication, Mike’s already got those ready. Jump past the break for a few more photos and links…

SRAM and shimano both make 130 bcd and 110 bcd. 110 bcd is used on compact cranksets, and 130 bcd is used on standard cranksets. All of these photos look like 110 bcd.

SRAM & Shimano compact chainsets are 110mm BCD, not 130.

Stu Thorne of Cyclocrossworld.com has had his Thorne rings for the last several years. Available in 110 or 130 BCD (don’t know about 135 for Campy), with similar gear combos and the rings are ramped and pinned too. Have been using them for 2 seasons now and they are absolutely fantastic.
