    11 speed chainrings for older quarq
    I have a quarq riken (at pre-dates 11 speed be a year or two.

    I'd like to get some new chainrings for it and start using it on my 11 speed bike (currently dura-ace crankset). I know I'll need to swap the bb also.

    I'm a little confused with what chainrings will work. The sram powerglide 11 speed all seem to say they use the hidden bolt design, which I'm sure my quarq doesn't have and I'm not seeing a lot of other options.

    Can anyone recommend a (hopefully affordable) pair of 11 speed compatible 53/39 chainrings for 130 bcd that will bolt onto the older sram style cranks from 4-5 years ago?

    edit: or do the hidden bolt ones work on the older cranks also?

    I'd imagine that you could just use the 10 spd chainrings already installed if not too worn. I replaced my 10 spd Quarq with an 11 speed quarq but kept my 10 speed chain, shifters and derailleurs. Works fine.

    I have a big TT chainring on it now which I don't want to use on a road bike so I need to replace it.

    Regardless you are using an 11 speed crankset with a 10 speed drive train, I'm looking to do the opposite.


    Edit. After doing some reading I'm just going to get 10 speed chainrings and see how it works

    The width of the 10-speed chainring will be fine. If it it works with the spider, it'll work. The ID of chains has not gotten narrower since 8-speed... or maybe it was 9-speed. It absolutely was not 10.
