Choosing and attaching bashrings

Hi, I hope this question doesn't sound too stupid, I just don't want to fork out on a bash ring if it turns out to be the wrong type.

I was just wondering if I could be given advice on what type (and also make) of bash ring I would need to attach to Specialized Pitch Pro with 22S/32S/44A 4mm thick outer, 4 bolt 104/64mm rings. I'm a student so money is a bit thin on the ground so I wouldn't want to fork out too much.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

    to replace the 44T ring or to add to it?

  • I'm not sure. Probably to replace. Which would you recommend? Given that I'm already catching a bit going over stuff, would placing it as well as the 44T make it overly large?

    Thanks!

    then you just need to get one to cover your middle ring. currently a 32T so a #"T bash will do.

    If you want to use a bigger ring then you will need a suitable sized bash.

    Take care getting a bsh that is too big can cause chain rub on it.
