I want a spiderless crank for my 1x10 setup to fit one of the upcoming XX1-style chainrings in 28t flavour to (please PLEASE don't question my ability to choose my own gear rating, ok thx).
The thing is that I can't seem to find any at prices comparable to say SLX - XX1 is actually among the cheaper options. Did I miss anything? Anyone except SRAM making them? Other options to achieve what I want? Going on a Soul, 73mm bb shell.
I wouldn't really mind XX1, but I'm thinking that replacing chainrings will be more expensive (unless the 3rd party options for regular cranks turns out to be a ripoff too).
While a 28t fitted to the granny position on my current SLX cranks is an option it will look ridiculous so I'd really prefer a "proper" setup.
