It is way easier to find a second hand 4-arm Clavicula, than 5-arm road. Did anyone try to run the 2-ring "Clavicula dp" on a road bike? Any recommendations for 104mm BCD chainrings with 50/34 teeth?

I've not tried it myself but don't MTB cranks often have much wider q factors than road?

As for chainrings, you'll struggle to find 50/34 in that BCD but go to Fibre-lyte and they'll sort you out. :thumbup:

Think it will be way to wide and hard to handle by your front derailleur too.

Hmm I hadn't considered that. Is it because of the MTB's 135mm rear spacing?
