    2x to 1x

    I am wanting to turn my 2x10 into a 1x10. I have a MRP G2 on the way but not sure if I should go with a used xt or slx in a 3x or 2x and try to just remove the extra chain rings. Can a 9 spd XT crank or even an xtr run a single chain ring without issues? I was thinking about getting a Zee crank but wanted something a bit lighter. Any advise would be helpfull.
    Narrow and rugged is the path that leads to life and few find it.

    I have ran XT, LX and XTR cranks as 1X. Easiest is starting out with a triple.
