There are some 51t, 52t and 54t Sugino rings on Ebay. There are also lots of 53T chainrings - the Shimano Dura Ace one looks a lot like the photo you linked from BF........

Tried that

Hey, thanks, but I tried e bay and the ring didn't fit. I'm a novice so I can't measure a chain ring, but surfing I found a picture. I joined this forum, because I figured some hard core would bail me out.

Peace,

Mark

Thanks. I'm a veterinarian and BCD is not in my vocabulary. If I put the micrometer on, is there a custom outfit that would mill me a chain ring? I'd even mail the ring in.

Thanks,

Mark May

Amazon also has several Sugino 53T chainrings listed........but I can't tell you which one would fit your bike.

Measurement

So If I find a 53T sugino chain ring what do I measure to get BCD, or whatever the critical measurement is.

Thanks,

markmay, have you gone into any bike shops and asked around? Most shops have tons of odd gears laying around. Might get it for a tetanus shot trade.

I like any man who is a veterinarian. I'm an animal lover with a clawless cat I rescued. Grew up with many dogs. Only date them now. Not enough room in my flat.

My younger brother has plans to become a vet. He's at university now and works for a Manchester horse doctor when he has time. Should he get his degree I figure to have free health care until mange takes me down for good.

markmay: Just now noticed Fairbanks. As in Alaska? Do you work on huskies much? My grandfather spent time in Maine and Labrador training sled dogs with American Norman Vaughn who used dog teams to rescue downed US and RAF flyers traveling between Britain and the US during WW2. Several times he teamed with Vaughn on trips into the Canadian wild and up near Greenland. Those were better times than these. More adventurous.

Bike stores in Fairbanks?

I have 3 options in Fairbanks, and they all want me to put the old bike on the heap and buy a new ride. Go figure. Here's a picture of the chain ring I need.

Hey Mark,

I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but you don't have to use a Seguino chainring with a Seguino crank. Pretty much any one will do as long as the BCD pattern is the same. The first thing you need to do is determine your BCD. Check out Mootsguy's link for that. Also, you do not necessarily have to match the tooth count unless that's what you really want. A 51 or 52 will work fine.

Bike stuff is pretty simple and a big chainring should not be hard to find.

Palin

Sarah's the real deal, but Todd Palin's the Dude. Check out Irondog racing. Now can I have my chain ring?

Fred at Raven can't help you? Very surprising. Also, have you tried Greatland Sports on College near that freeway? Last time I was there those two shops appeared to be the type that would try to find the part rather than sell you a new bike, but I don't really know.

The fairbanks cycle club has a website w/ forums and also a listserver. I'll bet someone locally can help you too.
