I recommend this product
Cons36 should be replaced with a 34 or 33.
ProsGives a more user friendly top gear.
I bought this to replace 50/34 Shimano set with a 11/34 cassette. The 50/11 combo was hardly ever used. A lot of my friends are now thinking of changing to the 46/3? as it gives a more useable set up. Shimano has missed a trick by discontinuing this set.

Can I use this as a replacement for FC5700 chain set. I still have the 5700 shifters and derailleur
27 Oct 2020
Yes this should be fine, however, make sure your front derailleur can work with the new gear ratios of this chainset.

34T chainring?
08 Jun 2018
I just bought this from you but I'd like to have a 46/34 set up instead. I'm just struggling to find a 34T chainring that's compatible. Could you please point me in the right direction?
On paper, the rings will work with 36/46 as that is how they have been designed to shift correctly. You may be able to get the 34t to shift fine, and we would recommend using - SJS Cycles part number : 32728

Hi there, I was wondering if this chainset is compatible with a 9 speed road bike.
30 May 2018
I have a 9 speed Pinarello FP2 road bike with a Hallowtech2 bottom bracket.

Yes this would be compatible but shifting will not be as smooth as it would be with a dedicated 9 speed chainset.

Can i fit a 34 tooth small chainring to this chainset please.
01 Mar 2018
Hi there,

Yes you could fit a 34t chainring.

Can i use this with praxis 52/36 chainrings?

Hi there,

Yes, as long as the BCD is correct.

Can I use this on a Genesis Croix de fer?

I currently have the standard 50/34 crankset but I'm looking to ride some big mountains and would like lower gearing. Would it fit my bike?

It will depend upon what bottom bracket you have fitted to your bike, but If you have a normal Shimano type road bottom bracket fitted then this chainset will fit fine. You will need to adjust your front derailleur and possible shorten the chain though as well. It is also worth mentioning that although this chainset has a smaller outer ring, the inner ring is larger than your current chainset so you will actually give yourself a harder bottom gear.

Can I Use This Chainset With An 8 Speed Set, As I Wish Only To Change The Chainset?
03 Aug 2016

In theory you'd be able to use this chainset with an 8spd chain, the shifting won't be as good as with a dedicated 8spd chainset though. We do offer the 8spd Claris FC-2450 in a close ratio to this chainset (46/34T) and this one would be more suited to an 8spd drivetrain.
