How to Change Your Bike Chainrings?

The chainrings are the round, spikey bits joined to your cranks that pull the chain around. A perfect road racing bike, for example, may use a 53t long chainring, while a bike is more intended at ease, and sportive riding may use a 50t long chainring as part of a chainset. You can buy chainrings from Shimano, Sram, Specialized, Rotor, Campagnolo.

Steps to Change a Chainring

1. First, remove the chainset and locate the chainring nuts on the crank. Elbow grease will be needed.
2. Using the 5mm Allen key, undo the nuts by directing them in a counterclockwise direction.
3. Once you’ve removed the nuts and put them to one side, separate the chainrings for cleaning or substitute them with new ones.
4. Use a degreaser to polish the bolts. Before reinserting them, give them a swift finish of raw grease and implement some to the boltholes.
5. Examine the chainring for an adjustment arrow, which shows where it requires to line up with the crank.
6. Lastly, screw the bolts back in using a torque wrench and check you have bound them up adequately by hearing out for the torque wrench to click.

When should you change your chainrings?

Over time, when your chain exhausts and strains, youll notice your gear shifts become less accurate and less active. It is the time you have to change your chainrings otherwise it will wear out your cassette and chainring teeth.
