Replacing the chainring
« on: February 19, 2021, 08:25:42 AM »
I could use some advise on replacing the chainring on my rad rover.
Since most of my riding is on steep hills I would like to have lower gearing.
The loss of top speed is not a concern.
Problem is I have no idea if the bolt patterns are a standard size , or chain size, number of teeth.
I am thinking it should be a easy part swap if I buy the right chainring .
Anyone know where I can find this info?

You could probably find a matching chainring for the Rad bolt pattern, but it may be simpler to just change the crank arms and chainring as a set. They have several on Amazon, and one of them is listed below which gives you a choice of sizes with 32/34/36/38/40/42 teeth.

I have upgraded to 52t chainring and 8 speed 11-42 cassette.
Note. I have changed to G062.1000
DC (free hub version). Thats why cassette.
