Planning to convert my XT crankset 2x10 to 1 x10. Besides the chain ring, will I need new chain ring bolts to accommodate the single ring? THANKS
Appreciate yall time!
option #1 you could use shorter bolts, steel if you can find them
option #2 you can use a bash guard instead of the bigger ring
option #3 my mrp chain guide came with spacers to take up the difference
personally I was not impressed with the quality of the mrp guide
If you don't use a bash guard then you will need to use shorter chainring bolts. Actually, it is the nuts that need to be short.
None of the stores around here seem to carry single ring bolts and nuts, I don't know how many times I've bought a little bag of bolts and when I've got home they are too long.
I shorten the nuts using a belt sander and vice grips. As long as you get them short enough, the actual length is not critical.
Another option if you plan to stay with a 1x10 setup and want a bashguard is to grind the teeth off of your outer chainring and make it into a bashguard if you have the patience to do it :)
He doesn't have an outer ring 2x10 is more like two middle rings
1x10 itīs good
A 2 ring set-up normally has a bash on it already. So spacers or shorter bolts will be what you'll need.
