Wolf Tooth has been making their popular Drop-Stop chainrings for a few years now out of aluminum which makes for a light and stiff chainring and is great for XC riding but doesn't hold up all that well when you introduce logs and rocks into your ride. If you prefer durable vs lightweight Wolf Tooth now makes the Drop-Stop chainrings in 416 Stainless Steel.
This version of the stainless steel Drop-Stop chainring is made to work with cranks that use a 4-bolt 104mm BCD bolt pattern. If you are going to use this chainring on a fatbike crank you can find out more on proper chainline with Wolf Tooth Chainrings and fatbikes here.
Wolf Tooth Stainless Drop-Stop Direct Mount Chainrings can be used with 9/10/11-speed drivetrains but it is recommended that you use a 10-speed chain with a 9-speed drivetrain.
The Wolf Tooth stainless Drop-Stop chainrings like the aluminum chainrings are machined in Minneapolis, Mn USA.

asked by: rlhcmh I have a truative 3 speed crank that I have converted to a x2 by limiting the travel on the front derailleur. I have the original 32t 104 mm center chain ring paired with a 42t 104 outer chain ring. This setup works fine, but am looking to get a little more low end with a 30t 104 mm paired with my 42t 104 outer chain ring. Will this chain ring work as a x2 inner chain ring?
anwered by: canteau The Wolf Tooth 104 BCD Chainring is designed for 1x applications and because of it's chain retaining design, it will not be able to be shifted out of once the chain is on it.
