Salsa Cycles may be best known for their chromoly stems and various frames, but they also make a fairly deep line of components and accessories. As far as I’m concerned, they make some of the finest no-frills replacement chainrings around. For a number of years now I’ve used Salsa rings on most of my singlespeed bikes, and a quick count shows a half-dozen of them currently in service on one bicycle or another.
Due to their lack of ramps, pins or cut down teeth, these rings are best left for singlespeed drivetrains though one can certainly shift across them just not as quickly or smoothly as ramped and pinned varieties. The rings are cnc machined from 7075-T6 aluminum to apparently very tight tolerances, as I’ve always found Salsa rings to be round with a proper fit on chainring spiders yielding consistent chain tension. After countless miles I’ve not had a ring warp and can’t say I’ve otherwise found a flaw in a Salsa chainring.
Available in most common road and mountain bolt patterns and tooth counts for less then $30 at just about every bike shop in the land, these rings make a solid choice for revamping a drivetrain.
