TA Nerius Rings for Campag ?

Thinking of replacing the rings on my best bike, it's square taper Record with 50/36 compact so 110bcd with one bolt slightly offset just to make things difficult !

Replacement Record rings seem hard to come by and not cheap - TA Nerius are a possible alternative which would save some cash, welcome as it's a fairly old bike now and I don't want to chuck shedloads of money at it - but as it's my race bike I want to make sure the shifing wont be affected.

Anyone got any experience that might reassure me or make me steer clear ?

    I use and sell TA rings, apart from making sure you have the correct ring they're fine. Compact Campag trad 5 arm? You don't have a bolt that screws into the crank, then the Nerius are fine. If one screw goes into the crank arm you need Solano

    Yes i need the ones that screw into the crank - thanks for the heads up I must have got them mixed up with the nerius.

    I thought it was only the aluminium cranks that had one offset bolt, and that carbon versions had all 5 bolts on the same PCD. Anyone confirm?

    You may be right - it screws into the crank and the hole is different but it may not be offset - just shows the value of asking before buying !

    I had an "old style" Campag Record compact(Carbon) chainset on my now sold Cervelo and that definitely had the offset 5th chain-ring bolt and the TA Nerius was my choice of replacement.

    Just did a quick "google" and seems Parkers have them at £35.50 in 34T 36T and 39T.

    Have a Campag Chorus Compact Ultra Torque carbon 10 speed chainset with the offset bolt, and the replacement rings are the Nerius. Nerius can be bought in either 10 or 11 speed.

    Should have added that I also have a Campag Centaur compact chainset with square taper, which has none offset bolt and has a TA Zephyr on it.
