Xc single ring set up
I run 1×10 on my bikes, purely for simplicity. It’s fine for XC, you can run any groupset just with single ring, and pick a ring size to suit your riding. I run a 34t front and only miss the lower gears if I’m doing sustained climbing over a couple of days then it starts to get to me. For most XC though its fine.
If you want to try it, chuck on an on one steel single ring and superstar device to try it and then you can go back if you don’t like it. The new clutch shimano mechs are supposed to be a lot better for 1×10 but I haven’t tried one. Maybe look at the larger range rear 10spd cassettes to get a bit of a lower gear, I.e. 11-36.Posted 4 years ago

It will soon be time to replace the worn out chainrings and cassette on my cannondale f700 hard tail. I like the thought of a 1×10 setup and was wondering if anyone has one with an Xc bias? All the things I’ve found seem to be aimed at enduro/downhill (shimano zee for example) I’m replacing everything but don’t want to spend much!JoBMember
running XT chainset, cassette and mech with E Thirteen ring and Pauls chainguide here for XC, all fine
as others have said it’s a simple thing to do, doesn’t need anything special although a clutch rear mech can help hold the chain on the ring, and remove chainstay clatterPosted 4 years agocrankriderMember
