FSA's Pro Road chainrings are made from CNC-machined 7000-series aluminum for low weight. The teeth are ramped and pinned for excellent shifting, too.
To choose the correct chainring, 1) determine the number of teeth (they're usually marked, or simply count them), 2) determine how many bolt holes there are (usually 4 or 5), and 3) determine the Bolt Circle Diameter (BCD; see diagram).
Common BCDs include:
130mm (Shimano Road)
135mm (Campagnolo Road)
110mm (Compact Road)
104mm, 94mm, and 64mm (Mountain)
Finding the number of teeth and bolts holes is easy. If you don't know your chainring's BCD, measuring it is tricky. So, instead, measure the exact distance (center to center) between 2 adjacent bolt holes. Then find that number on the correct chart below to determine the BCD for your chainring.
|BCD Chart for 5-bolt Chainrings|
|Bolt to Bolt (measure center to center)||Bolt Circle Diameter (BCD)|
|BCD Chart for 4-bolt Chainring|
|Bolt to Bolt (measure center to center)
||Bolt Circle Diameter (BCD)|

This chainring has a 5-bolt pattern and is for use with 9-speed Shimano/SRAM and 10-speed Campagnolo double-ring cranksets.
