    How big of a gxp x01 chainring will fit on the new nimble 9? Pics of my 30t included.

    I have a 30t on there now and was wondering if i could go any bigger. I have included pics for whatever they are worth, if anything.

    When I first built my nimble 9 with an XX1 crankset, I used the 32t chainring that came with it. 32t works just fine. Not sure if there is clearance to go bigger. Now I have the 30t on, otherwise I would measure it for you.

    How big were you hoping to go? I found myself wanting an easier gear for longer climbs with the tall final drive ratio of the large volume 29er Hans Dampf and an 11-36 cassette. I'm happier with the 30t. The Canfield micro9 looks like a cool way to add top end speed to a small chainringed 1x10 setup. But obviously it's much more expensive than just swapping a chainring.

    I'm running a 32t MRP Bling Ring on my XX1 cranks and have about 3.6mm of clearance between the chain ring and the chain stay. I think a 34t Bling Ring would fit easily, a 36t would probably be getting pretty tight though.

    The clearance with your stock 30t looks tighter than mine does with my 32t so maybe the Bling Ring has a different chainline?
