- Soul chainset question
I have a 2010 Soul running 22/36 and have had problems with the chain taking paint off the chainstay.Posted 3 years ago
I added an additional spacer to the BB to give more clearance and it knackered the chainline totally and gave me chainsuck all the time. I asked Cy about the clearance issue and he said 36t is the max ‘middle’ ring you can run on the Soul
Please bear with me, I need to set this out as logically as I can:
My Soul is currently 2×9 with an XT M770 triple converted to double’n’bash, 36T/22 with a stinger. It has an SLX double specific front mech and it all functions very nicely.
A small windfall means I have some spare readies, and am considering converting it to 10 speed.
Firstly, will the current chainset and mech run with a 10 speed chain and cassette?
Next. Will the frame run a 2x M785 38/24 or similar. Something at the back of my mind makes me think that there’s a problem with some chainring clearances on the stays.
The next question, and I’m exploring options here, is whether it’ll run 1×10 with a 32T chainring?Posted 3 years ago
