    sakae fx slp replacement chainrings

    I have a late 80s sakae 52/42 and I'd like to drop it down to a 40 or 39 on the small ring. Is that possible and where can I find one that's reasonably priced? I know I can get a decent square taper crank on ebay for $50 but this one is white and it looks cool on my bike. Like to keep it but the 42 is killer at times. Keep trolling ebay?

    That depends on the bolt hole circle. If its 144,then there isnt a ton out there. But if its 130mm you should have lots of choices.

    I believe it's a 130, 5 bolt. Nearest measurement I can get between bolts is between 75-76 so it has to be a 130 right? Can I just pick up any old 130 and it will work, or is it riddled with complexity like everything else that seems like it would be simple?

    Sheldon Brown's cribsheet says 76.4mm btw bolt holes is 130. That's probably what it is. Lots of rings floating around in that size.
    The 9/10 speed rings will work fine. There's lots 130 rings here for example. I've used the salsa ones with older cranks with great results.
