SilverBack Sola 1 Max Chainring Size


Recommended Posts

Hi. Would you say that a 2022 Silverback 29er Sola 1 can take a 38 or even a 40 teeth front chainring?

a 36T, maximum 38T just by looking at a pic of the bike. The lower chainstay and its "outward bow" is the limiting factor. A 0 offset chainring might allow you sneak a couple of extra teeth in there but will sacrifice a straight chain line to the cassette. increasing wear and reducing shifting performance. 

Best bet would be to take it to your LBS and have them test fit some different sizes. Not many would keep a blade of that size in stock though.
