- Could i run an XX1 crank with a shimano 1×10 setup?
Plenty of info about it here:
If you’re going for an XX1 chain set, bike-discount.de are doing them fro pretty good prices at the moment.
mtbmatt on here was also selling one in the classifieds a couple of weeks ago.Posted 4 years agomosSubscriber
I have a miidleburn x-type crank with a 32T uno ring and top guide, which i had hoped that i could run a wolftooth 30T ring on with no guide. I duly orderd & recieved said ring a couple of weeks ago, but the offset is way less that it should be, more like a standard RS8 ring ofset. Meaning that the chain is only in a straight line when i’m on the 2nd or 3rd sprocket at the back, not good. When i asked wolftooth about it, their response was ‘yeah it is a shallower offset for fat bikes’, it would have helped if that was on their website!Posted 4 years ago
After looking at other crank & aftermarket alternating ring combinations it seems that flogging may middleburn stuff & buying an xx1 crank is gonne be the best option.
I’ve done a bit of reaserch and it seems that the internal width of an xx1 chain is the same as 10 speed, with only the external width (i.e. plate thickness) being different.
So can anyone else see any probs with running this particular combo?
