    Yes, maybe, no.

    Just went 1×10 and no regrets, yet.

    Bike came with a 3 x 10 set up (SRAM x9). As I rarely use anything but the middle ring I’m considering ditching the bits I’m not using, fitting a chain guide, and enjoying a slightly simpler life.

    Should I? Current cassette is 11-32…?


    I’ve been on a 1×10 setup for 2+ years now. I love it. If you’re riding is in a particularly hilly area and/or climbing isn’t your strong suit, you may want a 11-36 cassette. I run a clutch mech and a top guide and chain retention is very solid.

    I’m liking it, if type2 mech, no need for chainguide in my experience.
