I installed this chainring on a Burley tandem for the middle chainring. The chainring that came off had shift pins and ramps so I was a bit worried that the gears would not shift properly but they shifted fine

StarStarStarStarStar Surly Stainless Chain Ring

Ownership: a few months

Well made and long lasting. This is my second one, the first one wore out after 5 years and many miles. Very pleased with it, so I did not hesitate to get another one. Modern Bike was easy to order from and fast shipping too.

StarStarStarStarStar Surly 42t Stainless steel chain wheel, 3/32"

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Very high quality, fit is perfect, and this polished up beautifully with metal polish such as Flitz metal polish. I checked the 'flatness' and diameter on a granite block and .0001 micrometer. I was amazed that this chain ring in all dimensions was +.001 in some areas but -.000 in all others. Amazing. And considering that this is stainless steel, it should last at least 3x longer that the best forged aluminum alloy.

Cons

None so far.

Other Thoughts

Being as smooth as it is, it runs very, very smooth and quite. What else could you ask for?

Surly products have always been top notch in my experience. This is no different. Fairly simple and straightforward product. Clean finish and it's been tough as hell. Small Surly logo looks good lined up opposite the OD crank.

Cons

None

StarStarStarStarStar High-Quality Chainring

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Great product at a great price. Stainless steel is the perfect material for the chainring on my internal-geared commuter bike. No derailleurs means greater wear on drivetrian components, so I'm hoping to get longer life out of this ring.

Cons

A bit heavier and a little more expensive than aluminum, but the longer life of the ring should greatly offset its higher cost. And weight is not really an issue on a commuter bike.

StarStarStarStarStar sturdy and shiney. Not built for speed but it's fine for my fixie commuter.
