A chainring from Velomio is arguably the most important part of your bike. It is the part that transmits the energy you create when pedaling to the rear hub via the chain.
In layman’s terms, it is the round, spiky part on your bike that is connected to the cranks and pulls the chain when you are riding. The size of the chainring directly impacts your bike’s gearing.
Smaller rings mean smaller gears that are easier to push while bigger rings mean higher gears that are harder to push. This size is usually expressed in terms of the number of teeth the ring has. For instance, a normal leisure bike has a 50T (50 teeth) ring while a road racing bike has a 53T ring.
When shopping for bike parts, two main factors determine the size of the chainrings bike you should go for. These are the Bolt Center Diameter (BCD) and the spider type. Your bike’s crank has either a four or a five-bolt chainring attachment called the spider.
The BCD is the diameter of the circle that would be made if you joined the bolt holes on the chainring. This diameter is different between standard and compact chainrings. For replacements, you can read the BCD on your chainring to get the exact dimensions.
The chainring you use will be directly determined by the type of chainset you use. here are the different types:
