Ok giving my road bike a bit of tlc, chain, cassette, cables etc. Looking at the large chainring it looks very worn - I didn't think it'd been on *that* long but maybe I've worn the chain too much - that's the worst bit in the pic - I do normally keep it cleaner!

It's currently running Praxis Works 50:34 on 110bcd with a Power2Max and Rotor crank.

I don't really like the 50:34 combo - but Praxis don't make a 50:36 - was considering their 52:36 (which isn't a combo I've used - think it's 110 BCD still) OR an alternative make to get 50:36.

Questions are - with a 52 will I need a different front mech or are all Ultegra 11spd mechs universal? If a new mech will any Shimano 11 work ?

Any recommendations for an alternative 50/36 chainring ?

    There is only one front mech for each groupset. It won't care what chain rings you have.

    Ok thanks - previously used Campag who did have compact specific front mechs for a while but that saves me some expense.

    Just a case of choosing the rings then.
