    You're going to use a chain ring as a derailleur hanger? Brilliant!

    I did something silly and un-cinched my race face cranks with the oneup switch.

    https://www.oneupcomponents.com/collections/switch

    It doesn’t get much more “bike industry” than this....

    My justification was the cheaper replacement cost of the ring portion, which seems to be critical to keep “fresh” to avoid dropping chains. I also want to try an oval 32, and figured they were a good option to try, and go only-partially-retard.

    Worth a look...

    I always use NSB for derailleur hangers, and they seem to be of high quality..

    If you get the ring, let us know how it works and what the chainline is like. I avoid the RF rings because their chainline sucks. WT, OneUp or MRP are much better in that regards.

    Will do. I'm not a chainline expect, but don't a lot of these come in boost/nonboost versions?

    Same here. Been using the hangers for such a long time. Though some bikes come with pretty decent hangers stock now, there is the odd bike that still comes with those standard cheese grade ones that bend if you look at them wrong.

    Having seen what happens when a hanger breaks deep in the bush and also having experienced it, I always pay the price upfront for an extra NSB one and keep it in the hydration pack. Chances are it won't ever be used, but dayummmmmm, when you need, you usually really need it.
