What are you planning on using to keep the chain on?
Personally, I wouldnt bother with a guide or using the front mech. Just invest in a new thin/thick chainring. You’ll therefore have a completely new drivetrain so none of the associated probalems with a new chain.
after many, many years of resisting the urge to upgrade my transmission i’ve now given in and will be taking the plunge to 10 speed…
my current set up is a 2×8 which runs perfectly and consists of:
8 sp shifters
8 sp chain
9sp front and rear mech
9 sp cranks and chainrings
i know i’ll need a new shifter, cassette, rear mech and chain…to save a bit of cash/weight i’ll be going to a 1×10 setup but my question is this:
will a 10 speed chain work on a 9 speed front chainring or will i need to change this to a 10 speed also?
any advice on this from the STW massive will be gratefully appreciated
I’ve got some xx1 chainset with 32t ring and gxp bb for sale. No chainguide needed.
sorry i bought a new chainset and b/b a few months ago so i’m going to stick with them…like i said i need to do this as cheaply as possible…only way the wife will allow me to spend on the bike especially with child number 3 on the way
