I am looking for a 39t 130bcd Midddle Chainring for a 5 bolt 9 speed triple crank, prefer silver, however, something a little cheaper than TA.

Any one seen one in a shop or on a web site?

Use a generic 39 of the correct BCD.It won't have shift ramps like a regular middle triple ring but will work.

boudreaux thank you for the response and the sugggestion. I will make it "plan C",
"A" being the FSA 39t I found on the Harris Cyclery page, however it does not seem to be available in Australia.
"B" is to use the TA 39t (10 speed) I got from them last week.

"A" + postage is far greater $$ than "B", so "C" may end up being the most practical option.

Update:

FSA 39 middle was offered to me this morning @ AUD$80, and an Ultegra 39 middle @ AUD$79, both a little too much for now, so I will leave things as is for the time being and go for 10x3 later in the year.

I spoke with the FSA Importer this morning, big mistake!!

He hates old people and especially pensioners, would have quoted more if he had known. Looks like you have to be female and young to pay a reasonable price for a part. US$34 full retail from Harris is way too much too. I think I will just leave the bike on the trainer until summer. :(
