Hi guys,

I have a not so important problem, but maybe you can help.

For my new project I would like to use Cobweb chainrings, as I thing they would make a nice match with my M5 brakes.
The problem is, I´m used to 52/42 up front and KCNC only makes a 39. Would it be aesthetically pleasing to use a different 42 inner ring or would it ruin everything?

Is there maybe someone who done this before and can provide pictures?

Maybe I'm just in a crotchety mood, but when did cycling become such a big fashion show?

Not, but I like the looks of the chainrings matching the brakes, also they are low in weight...

No reason it won't work but the spider rings are a bit flexy so don't expect amazing shifting.
