- Help me go 1 x 10! (Parts discussion content)
Sram 10 speed powerlinks arent re-usable. Go for a KMC chain which comes with a re-usable link.
Why not a zee mech? One of the good things abotu 1×10 is being able to use a short mech.
I personally wouldnt run a 1×10 without a chainguide, even if it has a stepped teeth thingy.
Get some shorter chainring nuts and bolts as well unless your 2x setup are ok.Posted 4 years ago
Phil – good shout with the bolts.
Was planning on running without a bash ring so I’ll need the shortest bolts going I assume?
Another good shout with the powerlinks – I’ll hunt a decent KMC chain.
Zee is quite expensive is it not? Kinda looking to do this semi budget conscious.
Mister P – thanks for the weights. Now to decide if 82 grams is worth £15 quid. (Hint: It’s not.)Posted 4 years ago
This seems a good chain:

So I’m going to swap my 2 x 9 456C to a 1 x 10 for all the usual reasons. yay.
So, can someone just make sure I haven’t missed anything and advise me on a few areas…
Frame – On One 456C
Rear Hub – Hope Pro 2
11 – 36
Looking at this Deore – nice and cheap, anyone know if it weights *that* much more than going SLX for 15 quid or so more?
Also – I’ve heard about metal carriers eating the hope pro 2 cassette thingie – anyone know if the carrier for this cassette is alloy or?
Would I get away with medium cage with 1 x 10?
Would happily use Deore Shadow Plus but no idea when that’s coming out.
I know very little about chains. Can someone point me and a decent VFM chain? Guessing just a £10 shimano 10sp or somthing & a sram powerlink?
Going to grab a Works Thick/Thin 32t sproket.
other than £5, what’s the difference between these two?
I think that’s everything. Shouldnt need a chain guide with the shadow plus & works sproket.
Any blinding errors in my choices?
If anyone’s got any of the above for sale either… end of the month i’ll be buying. 😆Posted 4 years ago
what front chain ring do you currently run as i use a 9 speed 32 tooth chain ring off crank set i had a while back and it works fine, therefore no need to buy a new chain ring.
also for a chain guide these are brilliant, light and cheap a lot cheaper than most guides availablePosted 4 years agowobbliscottMember
SRAM 10spd power links can be reused but you will need players to remove them. I have one that has been removed and refitted multiple times, at least 4 times, and its fine.
I got a second hand x9 chain ring, slid off the chain ring spider and am using a SRAM direct mount Wolftooth chainring. It’s light, stiff, and with the XX1 style teeth, shouldn’t drop a chain.
1×10 is great.Posted 4 years ago
