I apoligise if this is a dumb question.....

I am currently running 13/50. I don't want to put a little 12 up front. I want to go up 3 teeth on the rear. The only one I have found is aluminum. I want steel if at all possible. Is a steel 53 available? From whom? How many links will I have to add? Will the chain guide need to be modified? Replaced?

Thank You, RJ.

Iron Man sprockets make a 53.:) Tell them you are a member of the BRC and you should get a 10% discount.

Talk to them about the chain length. They have chain / sprocket combos.

Ken, the Ironman looks to be the answer. Light weight and steel to boot. It is just a bit on the pricey side, but you usually get what you pay for.

But for now, until I wear out my oem chain, I might try a Sunstar 52.

Thanks guys.
