Mountain Bike 36 Tooth Z-Rings
These 36t rings will fit a standard Mountain Bike 104 mm BCD, 4 bolt crank. Some cranks with this bolt circle are configured triple rings; Some for a double — Both will work fine with these Z-Rings as a simple conversion to a single chainring (1X) drivetrain.
Converting from a Triple: The standard MTB triple has 3 chainrings like this Triple Set, but it can be converted to single, with Z-Rings and these Conversion Tabs without buying a new crank. Get your Z-rings (see sizes above) with the Conversion Spacer Tabs – or use a bash guard to replace the large ring. Either way, converting to a Z-Ring single is easy 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 bolt circle. They take the place of the original 2×10 large ring. Select your rings here, or from the size list above. If the crank is compatible, the conversion that does NOT require a new crank!
