I’ve been offered this 42t-chainring of the brand Wickwerks for a very good price. https://wickwerks.com/products/cyclocross-42-34-std/
But can I use it as my small ring? Or does it only “fits” as big ring?
My setup now is 42-52-chainrings, 11-speed, 11-34-casette, Quarq DZero DUB, 5-bolt, 110mm.
I want the Wickwerks 42t-chainring as my little ring. Can i do that?
Just get a thighter spaced casette like a 11-28 or 11-26 and ride more in the 52. Would it technically work? Maybe, I don’t know. But why would you want to do that? Doesn’t make sense to me.
It’s hard to explain, why my question is relevant. But it is
And oops - my casette is a 11-28, not 11-34. My mistake.
My guess would be no unfortumately. The linked to ring is an outer and you are wanting to use it as a inner, all the chain ramps will be the wrong way. BTW if you can use a 42inner you are mega
I think it will work as a small ring, ramps, pins etc don’t matter as a small (its a 2x right).
