    1X10 Chainring teeth wear

    I converted my transAM from SS to 1x10 with the following components:

    XT 10spd Cassette
    Zee 10spd RD
    KMC 10spd Chain
    Blackspire mono veloce 34t Chainring
    MRP Top guide
    SLX 10 spd crankset converted to single

    On the outer side of the chainring, every other tooth is wearing quickly (anodized black chainring). It is the teeth that support the middle links of the chain, so it is a smaller width. I've come to the conclusion that this is occuring when I am spinning in the highest (36t) gear, and there is no wear on the inner side of the ring. I have zero chainline issues right now, no dropped chains, no skipping, and the top guide is only rubbing in the highest gear. The blackspire mono veloce is made for SS, but I have read countless reviews (and it is advertised that it is 10spd capable) where people use it on 10 speed with zero issues. Is this normal? I'm not really worried about the chainring, as it will last and I will replace it as it wears down, but what about the chain too? It has to be wearing as well. I will try and take a pic after work.

    Is the chainring actually wearing, or is it just the anodizing rubbing off (which I get with all my chainrings)?
