Hi all.

I have a new bike being delivered later in the week with an FSA 3 bolt chainring arrangement.
I want to run 1X10 so I either need to change the chainset to another BB30 such as XX or find someone who makes a 3 bolt unramped chainring.
Any suggestions (other than homebrew) who make these or could make me one.

Many thanks

Also, Homebrew components would likely do one up for you.

We can most likely machine a chainring to suit the 3 bolt crankset although we haven't done one yet.

What would be the price you reckon Stephen?

IMO it is pure stupidity to sell cranksets with no replacement chain-rings.

It would be the same as our standard chainring prices. We charge based on the number of teeth and whether they're for single or double ring use. See our website for details or send me a pm/email with chainring sizes and I'll be happy to try and answer your questions.

I'm sure FSA would argue that they provide chainrings for that crankset so no one else needs to. I suppose the same could be said of the Vuma Quad crankset, the Vuma Chrono and even one of Shimanos XTR cranksets had a strange bcd if I remember rightly. It all comes down to popularity of the crankset and whether aftermarket manufacturers think it's worthwhile to provide alternatives. In the case of the FSA crankset I imagine it's too small a market.

GBP90.98 including vat but not shipping for a 44 tooth outer chainring. A single ring chainring for a 1x9/10/11 with the same number of teeth would be GBP80.14 including vat but not shipping
