Re: Converting 2×10 to 1×10


I found converting to 1×10 from 2×10 ( sram x7 crankset) to be a frustration fest.
Unless yo have a type II rear derailuer you will have chain retention issues.
You will need to address the issues with a non-ramped or other single ring specific chainring (sram xx1 is ridiculously over priced but other options are out there).
You may need a chain guide, the bash ring may do the trick, but maybe not.

I scrapped the project in frustration, stripped the frame, drank some beer, and went single speed which still needs some tweaking.

The xx1 drivetrain is expensive but the narrow/wide chain ring technology is being "borrowed" by other companies and can be bought cheaper.

Good luck.
