    They only suggest a Lopes. I've got the Micro guide and I'll test it out with that. I've got the Lopes on my Yeti, but that's a BB mount so I can't test it with the One.

    I think so yeah. Depends on if any are in stock when I order, but i think it would be a pretty sweet setup.

    Got my NSB 30T ring today. It's def. got a narrower chain line than the MRP. It took a bit of spacer work with the MRP Micro guide to get it setup up properly, but it didn't take too long. The quality and finish is really nice. It doesn't fit as snug as the MRP does to the crank mounting, but once you tighten the screws down it's not going anywhere.

    I also ordered a ring from NSB. I started out my 1x10 journey with a 28t Bling Ring (pictured a page or two back.) It really didn't take too long to outgrow that set-up. I bumped up to a 30t Bling Ring for the winter and quickly outgrew that too. Just last week I received my NSB 32t ring. The quality is right on par with the MRP rings, the color is way better though. The grey is cool, but black is bad-ass! The chainline with the NSB was a little more narrow, but I only had to remove one spacer (out of 3) from the back of my MRP microguide. I haven't put too many miles on it yet, but just like the MRP rings there has been no problem at all. Still loving the microdrive cassette too.

    Also, a while back my guide took a hit and the lower pulley broke off. I have been riding without that pulley for a couple months now and have had no drivetrain issues at all. The single ring coupled with a clutch derailleur is bomb-proof. And the drivetrain is so much quieter without that lower pulley.

    Forgot to mention, I found this company today:

    wolftoothcomponents.com

    Looks like they are combining some of that swanky XX1 tech with GXP direct mount.

    Has anyone tried the widget out with the microdrive setup? Looks pretty interesting in this context.

    Anyone used the hub with a 160mm rotor? My Formula R1 brake is hitting the spokes when I use the 160mm disc. I'll try using a 180mm to try to sort it out. Maybe the formula are too fat to the inside, and the spoke angle doesn't allow this? It is on a Banshee Prime using 142mm dropouts, and other people usually need shims. For me, even without shims, I can't get the brake not to hit the spokes

    rsullivan- how many spacers on the guide backplate to get your chainline? Thanks in advance.

    On my 2011 One I used one (3mm sound right?) spacer per mounting point.

    (I would go and check but my bike HAS BEEN LOST BY ALASKAN AIRLINES on the trip back from Tucson to Vancouver! Tomorrow better bring some good news...)

    I used the 1mm spacer on each bolt. Seemed to line up for me with that. About .5-1mm gap on the guide in the high and low of the cassette.

    Thanks! I figured I'd need at least the 1mm spacers just to clear the lower link. Perfect. Thanks for getting back to me, much appreciated.

    Ride report

    I just got the XO cranks, 28t and micro on. Also been running the 9t.

    Had 3 rides on it so far (2012 the one). Previously I had Saints with a 34t. Was a bit much for me to climb heavy steeps in the North East. The 28t to 36t rear is near perfect for all climbing here (IMO). I ride in 8 inch CCDB full ALL THE TIME. Bike climbs with amazing traction.

    I am using this bike roughly for 70% DH and "was" worried about spinning out with the top end gearing on the 28t. The 28 front to 9 rear is not bad at all for me from the flat out runs I did. I havn't had it to a resort set up like this yet but I don't feel like I will be spinning crazy. Take into account I am not a real baller/huck master. Just having downhill-flowy fun!

    All in all... great set up for the One. And I don't have to use my left thumb!

    I've read through most of this and haven't found my answer so I'll ask.

    I am using X0 cranks with a GXP BB, 28t bling ring, Micro guide and 10s 9-36t cassette on a CB micro drive hub. Handles superbeautifully! My question is on the spacing for the BB and Micro guide in relativity to the chain line. I had my LBS install my BB and headset and I did the rest of the building, this is my 3rd time doing it and am pretty familiar with how everything is supposed to be.

    Upon installing the GXP BB, my mech put one of the BB spacers on each side. Mind you this is a 68/73 BB and the frame is The One with a 68mm shell. When I install the cranks and Micro guide I am using 5 of the small washers as spacers, essentially 5mm of spacing, to be in line with the chain ring. I didn't like the way the larger thick spacers sat on the ISCG mounts and they also weren't enough, and I didn't want to make a stack of half washers on top of the larger thick spacer, so I went with a 5 stack on each bolt, between the guide and frame. Following me? Is this incorrect? I'm thinking if the 1 BB spacer on the drive side was removed I could potentially remove 2 or 3 of the washers and move my chain line in a few mm.

    My main concern that in the lowest gears (36t and 2 next to it) I have a lot of chain rubbage on the upper guide. Other than that it all seems to shift and pedal like a dream.

    Thanks

    I have one spacer on the non-drive side and nothing on the other. The guide spacer's I've installed are the thicker one's that came with the guide. It works a charm.

    Your mech installed the BB correctly according to SRAM:

    Service Resources - SRAM | SRAM

    But like all things regarding guides, no universal rules apply. Best bet is to get a BB tool and play around with the whole set up until it is right. It is a pain and takes some time/patience, but the extra effort pays off.

    crs- that seems like the solution, one of the thick spacers is equal to 3 of the washers I believe, so if I took out the drive side BB spacer, I should be able to go from 5 washers to 3 (or 1 thick spacer). I just don't know if taking out that 1 BB spacer will cause any other problems, like making the crank or ring too close or something.

    calhoun- thanks, that's all I was able to find about the BB install, that it is correct. As stated, I am curious about taking the drive side spacer out, and what effect that will have on the chain line and crank.

    I will probably swing by the shop and see what the techs say.

    Thanks!

    The BB spacers are there to achieve correct chainline as well as BB width. It seems everyone can come up a little different.

    My 2012 one:

    With Saints and mini
    Non drive: 1 spacer drive 1 spacer
    Mini: 1 thick washer (no rub)

    With XO DH/BLING 28 and MICRO
    Non drive: 1 spacer drive 1 spacer
    MICRO: 1 thick washer PLUS 1 thin (no rub)

    Good luck. Be careful taking the BB in and out. Keep it clean.

    I can't say for sure, but I would imagine any derailleur would work. The hub doesn't actually change anything other than having a smaller ring. I have an X0 short 10spd and it shifts like a hot knife cuts through butter. 28t x 9t-36t and I have a great range.

    It's me again: Those that use the microdrive 9t hub for trail riding what can you say about wear? Does this setup (especially the 9t cog) wear out fast? I ask because I read somewhere that SRAM decided not to use a 9t cog on the XX1 cassette because the 9t cog would wear out to fast (this might be a rumour tough).

    on the 9 speed version... this is simply a shimano caprio cassette. Standard price as many others, about $80. It's designed as a road cassette and the Canfield guys just put it on a MTB hub. I don't have enough time on it to tell it it wears prematurely, but I don't see why it would, and even if it does it's no more than any other cassette to replace.

    On the 10 spd version, you stack 4 custom smaller rings on the bottom of the stack, 9, 11, 13, 16 replace 11, 12, 13, 15 (at least on the sram 1070). Again, these are not expensive to replace, and the system works just as well as any others. If it does wear quickly it won't be hard to get another.

    And TBH I haven't been down in that gear but maybe a handful of times, and that's on my AM rig with 28t drive. My bro has a DH setup with a 32 drive and hasn't even touched the 9t yet, but we haven't hit any lift assisted so far, we'll see when the summer speeds up!

    the idea is that when you are in the 9t ring you are not really putting much torque through the drive train. The thought that it will wear fast is primarily from the BMX crowd who when they went that low, had quick wear. They, however, are always in that gear unlike us geared crowd. I think wear should be pretty reasonable in our application.

    I have been on the 10 Speed set up for about 10 months. Like the posters above I don't spend too much time in those lower gears. I just had my rear wheel rebuilt and took the cassette apart and cleaned it. No noticeable wear and after some cleaning the cogs looked new.

    I say go for it. I was a little hesitant, but after talking with SupraMK I knew it would all be good. The quality is there but it is nice to know that Canfield will take care of any problem you have.

    Also, not sure if you have done so yet, but give them a call. They are super helpful on the phone, and you can get your questions answered directly.

    Thank you guys very much, lot of useful information here! I really like this idea of the Canfield hub but I think i will wait a few days more until Sea Otter to check, if Shimano will already present a reaction to SRAMs XX1 drivetrain. The tempation of the Canfield hub is nonetheless there, as you would only need this very special hub and the rest of the drivetrain could remain stock parts.

    Don't bother waiting for the big guys to respond. Stick to the little guy's, after all they were the first to bring the 9t to the market, all the while others just talked.

    This. Plus good luck getting a fast response out of the big guys. I have only had to use Canfield's customer service once. I bent a pedal spindle (my own fault) and Sean was more than helpful. Quick response to email, and even better on the phone. I doubt I will ever need to call them about my drivetrain, but if I do I know that I will be fully supported.

    What cranks and front ring for a microdrive setup?

    I'm thinking of getting a microdrive hub for my the One, which is currently setup with a Dorado in park mode. With a 170 fork up front, the One could replace my NomadC as my all-mountain bike, but the Nomad is set up with 36-22 front, 11-36 rear, and I'm a bit worried about the low gearing of the microdrive.

    I'd set the microdrive up for 9-36, and to obtain a low gear that's at least similar to the Nomad's, I'd need a 26 ring up front. On the other hand, for park days, I may want to replace the front ring by a 28 or 30.

    What cranks would accept a front ring in that range, i.e. 26 / 28 / 30 ?

    There are a hand full of crank options for small rings. Seems like most are following the Sram removable spider interface. The XO and X9 are a couple that you can run the small rings on. What others are there?

    SRAM has several with AKA X9 X0 XX1 and X01, all have removable spiders.

    RaceFace is joining with their NEXT SL crank and spiderless rings with N/W teeth down to a 26t

    E-Thirteen also has an offering with their TRS cranks and N/W rings down to a 28t

    MRP has the bling ring available, no N/W as far as I know

    Wolftooth components also makes rings in multiple colors and N/W teeth down to a 26t with odd numbers as well.

    NSB has some rings available as well, N/W teeth and odd #s down to 26t

    I have a 28t drive on a 9-36t pg 1070. I see a new offering from OneUp and Wolftooth that stacks a 42t on top of the 36t, but you have to remove one of the inner rings like the 19, essentially giving you a 9-42 cassette. I'll probably pick one up and see if I like it.

    Thanks for the overview TheRage! From the listed cranks, only the RaceFace Next SL is listed as a 26t-ring option on the manufacturer's website. Does that mean that Sram and E13 cannot take a 26t ring, or would a Wolftooth 26t ring fit on those?

    Recon 9t Microdrive Cassettes

    We now are able to source full 9-36t cassettes through a company named Recon. They specialize in lightweight, beautifully cnc'd cassettes and now offer 9t cassettes. The 9-36t comes in at a svelte 191g! The cassettes retail for $159, however we are running a sale on our packages to help our customers convert over to a 1x drivetrain.

    To learn more, please see our webstore:

    That's an awesome addition to your component lineup! And it weighs less than all but one of Sram's high end cassette which is only 6g's less! Great job guys!

    the NSB and wolftooth will both match up to the SRAM cranks in a 26t. From what I can read the E13 system only jives with its own guide ring

    Nice find Vin! Looks like the entire cassette is milled out of one piece, looks like a piece of art more than a cassette...

    E13 and Raceface seem to be the only ones doing their own interface. Everyone else has adopted the Sram interface which is really going to help with more compatible components to this in the, hopefully near future.

    Hey guys! I fall in love last couple years with 7sp setup we saw on world cup riders bike. After many reseach and seeing that there are no freehub/cassette solution for my current hubS, I was very happy discovering the CB hub! So Here i am just showing my "in making" 7sp setup if it can help someone. I use the 9-10-11-13-15 from the original Shimano 9sp Capreo cassette and the 14-17 from another cassette.

    I will use a 9sp Sram x9 short cage derailleur and a 9sp x0 shifter. The chainring will be a raceface singlering 32t with a MRP micro chainguide. This will be on my Turner DHR 2012. ^^

    After all I am not 100% sure if all of this will work! haha I will put picture when it will be assembled!


    thanks again Canfield Brothers!

    Hey guys! Here is an update! I installed the drivetrain on my bike and it works perfectly! I used some bmx related cable knarps ( BMXSTORE.eu - 100% BMX ON-LINE STORE | Knarps 34R CLITO KNARPS se dv?ma ?rouby - 2 ks ) to stop the shifter so I can't shift outside the cassette.

    Here is some pictures!
