Ok so I'm thinking of going 1x10, currently have a full XT 2x10 setup and I'm prepping my bike for the alps next year, or in the process of doing it anyway, with the mind of the simpler it is the less that can go wrong.
This is on a new bike, my previous bike I ran 3x10 SLX and pretty much stayed in middle ring all the time. Was thinking of trialling the change with my old SLX tripple crank, with just a 32T chainring. In my head this will work because the middle ring will be on centre chain line, and if works well I can put a bash guard in place of the large chain ring.
Any thoughts? Is this the right way to have a go at it or am I missing something?
