A few months ago, a reader prompted us to make some updates to our chainwheel bolt circle cribsheet. But now we have followed up on that effort, greatly expanding our coverage, and we have added a set of templates which allow you quickly to identify the bolt circle of alnost every model of chainring, and the tooth count, without the need to measure or count by hand. It’s all here: https://sheldonbrown.com/cribsheet-bcd.html. Example template is at the right.
If you can correct any inaccurate information or you can identify a chainring that we do not cover, please let us know. We are not too proud to take corrections, and we’ll even credit you on the site for your contribution!
