Chainring - Velosolo / Gebhart opinions
« on: 05 July, 2022, 09:39:55 pm »
It looks like I've lost a couple of teeth so fairly urgently need a new chainring

Goldtec seem to be sold out of sensible sizes.

Need 43 tooth 135 pcd 1/8"

The only ones I can find are Gebhart and Velosolo. Never heard of either of them. Any good? Any other suggestions?

I have had a Gebhart 3/32” 44t 135BCD chainring on my Pomp commuter for ages. It does the job fine without much eccentricity (which might be the crank).
Wheel meet again, don't know where, don't know when...

I've had a Velosolo on my fixie for ages. No sign of wear at all.

Either of those are ok. Nothing on eBay? Stronglight, TA, generic

Yes, the Gebhart arrived (after some to-and-fro with the seller saying "are you sure you want 135?") and it seems pretty decent. Probably better than the Goldtec it replaced.
