    2011 Flash Carbon 3 1x10 suggestions

    Would like to go 1x10 w my Flash. Seems to be various opinions about chain guide compatibility w BB30, spiderless chainrings, RD's, etc. I would appreciate any advice & personal experience on going 1x10 w a Flash. Currently running 2x10 w an Afterburner crank, x9 RD & x7 shifters & FD. Looking at running 36t chainring w an 11/36 cassette. Thanks in advance!

    Check out the Wolftooth components thread in the drive train forum. On my 2013 F29 Carbon I am running a 32t Wolftooth and an XT rear D. with the clutch. No bash guard or chain guide. Works great for me!

    Can you get a 36t chainring for the afterburner crank? I have same bike and am wanting
    to do the same 1x10 setup you are.

    I scoured all the forums & found an 86mm 3-bolt 36t chainring from Warhawk Industries. Placed my order on Friday, but didn't receive any confirmation or anything.....so hopefully everything works out. The reviews seemed pretty good for these rings but not sure when I'll have everything set up......sooner rather than later would be nice!

    Good to know I will check into that. Are you going to run a med. cage on back then or leave it stock?

    Gonna leave it stock for now & run an eThirteen xcx chainguide. For next season, chances are I'll swap the drivetrain & go spiderless or I may be on a different bike too (much to my wife's dismay!).
