Shimano Deore M480-L Chainring (Black) (3 x 9 Speed) (104mm BCD) (Middle) (32T)
The M480-L 32t center ring inside diameter is 3-35/64" & fits my 2004 raceface prodigy crank surface 3-36/64" (3-9/16") . In fact the M480L I.D. matches the I.D. of the original RF sprocket. 1st I tried the M532 which was to small with I.D. of 3-28/64" almost 1/8" to small. Thanks to performance Claire R & Steve B. who found the M480L ring.
FIXED- My chain no longer jumps from the mid 32t to the small 22t ring while climbing. BUT it doesn't shift as well for me as original RF. I found a $5.00 machined low grade aluminum ring that seems to work very well, but it won't last. I probably need to put the M532 ring back on and let the bk shop adjust the shifter.
