|I whant to "fix" my current road bike and it has a 38 inner. Is there a reason I can't use that as the front chainring provided that I can get the chainline right via spacers and or new BB?|

|I use a 39.
Seriously, use whatever you like. people like the bigger ones because they'll wear longer and ride nicer, but don't sweat it.

|It's a tiny bit light; I might go to a 42 or 44x16.
I find the front rings are a lot cheaper than rear ones.
