Can I use a chainring designed for 6/7/8 speed with a single speed, 1/8" chain?

The rear wheel only has a single cog - no derailleurs.

  • Does your rear wheel have one cog or multiples? Cos 1/8" chain does not work in a derailleur. – Criggie Aug 7 '18 at 7:46

If you want to use a 6/7/8 speed chainring on a single-speed or internally geared bike I think that will be fine.

You can't use a 1/8" chain with a front or rear derailleur obviously.
