Mountain Bike 34 Tooth Z-Rings
These 34t rings are designed for a 104 mm BCD, 4 bolt crank attachment – like on a standard mountain bike compact crank. Some cranks with this bolt circle are made for a triple; Some are made for a double — Both will work fine with these new Z-Rings for a simple conversion to 1X.
Converting from a Triple: The standard mountain bike triple crank has 3 chainrings like our Triple Set, but if you prefer a single, like many people, Z-Rings can make the conversion to 1X without buying a new crank. Get these rings (see sizes above) with the Conversion Spacer Tabs – or use a bash guard to replace the large ring. Either way, converting from a triple to a Z-Ring single is simple and does NOT require a new crank!
Converting from a 2×10: Check the bolt pattern of your mountain bike 2×10 first — make sure it is the 104 BCD. Z-Rings will fit fine with almost any 104 mm BCD bolt circle crankset. They take the place of the original 2×10 large ring. Select your rings here, or from the size list above. It’s an easy conversion that does NOT require a new crank!
