    Chain derailing. 46T to 36T bling ring.

    Hi, I have a Luna built KHS Alite 50 bike with a BBSHD
    Motor. I had the Lekkie 46T Bling Ring on the front and just replaced it with a 36T Lekkie bling ring. On the rear I have a SRAM 8 ring cassette with 11T-30T. I can’t use 1st and second gear with the 36T Bling ring because there isn’t enough offset to align the chain properly. Is there a different cassette I can buy that will give me the alignment that I need along with more teeth on each ring to give me more torque for climbing hills?

    Thanks!

    Oh well, so much for your chain line!

    Yes, a Shimano / Sunrace / SRAM 8-speed cassette with a 34 tooth low gear or maybe one of the obscure brand, mega-range cassettes with a derailleur hanger. Combining one of these with a Luna Eclipse 42 tooth chainring is probably the best you can do.

      SunRace has an 11-40t 8-speed that would give you more low end with the 42t ring than your 11-30t on the 32t ring while leaving your top end the same as with the 42t ring - best of both!
