- Orange 5 2×10, what size chain rings?
I’ve seen a 34t ring on an orange 5 with a 1×10 set up, ie. in the middle position, without any trouble. I run at 32t on mine and it’s fine, but I suspect if you start running a 36t with a chainguide, the upper guide would probably have to be pushed quite far back to avoid it hitting the swingarm.Posted 5 years agostilltortoiseSubscriber
I asked this question a while back and whilst there are some who use rings bigger than 32, there are also some who have noticed fouling on the swing arm. The conclusion appears to be you can risk it but it may not work (hence why Orange tell you not to bother).
FWIW this is one of the reasons I didn’t buy a Five.Posted 5 years agomanmurraySubscriber
got a 36 on mine, good amount of clearance
spoke with orange when going 2×10 – their line was it depends who did the weld on the swingarm + how much weld they used. some clear fine, others don’t
bought a cheapy cheap deore 36t ring in case it didn’t clear (has stayed on :))Posted 5 years agoMatt24kSubscriber
With regard to fitting a double and bash the Orange website says
If you are going to use this set-up we recommend using 24-32T ring sizes. Using a larger outer/middle ring is not compatible with our frames
Has any one fitted a 34t or even a 36t?Posted 5 years ago
Oh, and don’t bother posting a picture of a filing cabinet as it’s been done to death and is just not funny any more.
