    32 tooth chain rings are pretty easy to find.

    I think I had a 118 with a plastic spacer with a 1984 Shimano N600 triple. (I converted to a sealed bottom bracket from the old cup and cone from the ancient past.) The spacer broke and my inner chainring did a number on the paint on the seat tube. Of course, I may have misremembered the axle length or maybe old triples were wider.

    I think it is a 2005. It was stolen, er, I mean I bought it on Craiglist. It may have been mod. The guy I bought it from said he had returned it to pretty much the original config. The LBS said the chainrings were pretty much a touring config. Which sorta makes since the BB is a bastard step child - neither a mountain nor a road bike and not even really a hybrid. Again, I live in that 38 (except for the Arlington hill, where I pretty much just call a taxi).

    If I just got a new crank set, it would probably be a 36 in the mid. That's what is available.

    My 2003 BB Ultra has a Truvativ crank. And I don't know about that parts spec on Bikepedia, becuase mine had a bunch of crappy CODA parts that died one by one and were replaced.

    Yeah, based on what yousse guys are telling me, sounds like that would work. That will be Plan B. The LBS has a used crank and ordered the 122 mm bottom bracket. If they come through, I will go with that. If they dont, I will buy this chainring and do it myself.

    Of course, the real solution is that this arrives today:



    Just steal it from The Kid.

    (it may come to happy hour if he bribes the mechanic well enough)

    I would buy a new crankset before I would pay $50 for a chainring.

    Hasn't the Kid heard of hand-me-downs?!

    [off topic] "Even"? Nashbar (and their dull twin, Performance) hasn't been a good source for parts for years. (They don't even routinely carry ball bearings anymore.) Try Universal Cycles or maybe Niagara.
