As crank, frame, and chainring standards evolve, finding the right MTB chainrings and spiders for your bike can be difficult. One option is to choose direct mount spiders for a little extra modularity without having to fully commit to complete customization. You can also explore the selection at Big & Tall Bike to help you find all of the components you could possibly need to enhance the performance of your mountain bike. Check out everything our custom chainring selection has to offer.
There are two options for your bike customization in our selection: direct mount chainrings and spiders. While MTB chainrings are lighter than spiders, they aren’t as easy to install or remove. One of the benefits of the spiders is that you can sometimes change the rings without having to remove the cranks whenever you want to swap your custom chainrings based on terrain. Although, direct mount chainrings do go down to 26 teeth, which can be useful if you’re looking for climbing gears only – instead of a broader range cassette at higher speeds.
Whether you’re shopping just for MTB chainrings or you’re looking to create a completely custom bike, Big & Tall Bike is here for you! We’ve spent years developing bicycles for people with unique body proportions to accommodate their needs.
