    Crank swap 2x to 1x

    I'm considering going 1x on my rip 9. Deciding between a race face turbine or an 8000 series xt crank. I am going overall going with an xt group but I cannot seem to figure out if the xt crank is a true 1x?

    The RF Cinch system is far more versatile. Any size rings and spiders available to run 2&3 X in the future. You never know, you may have the cranks a long and they could be on a few different bikes.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    That's a good point. I called my lbs and they gave me a great price on a 1x xt package with a rf cinch crank. I rode a buddies bike with a rf turbine crank and it had a really good feel. Always thought rf had top notch quality.

    Now to decide if I should sell my rip for a new trek fuel ex 9 or jet 9 rdo versus upgrade my rip 9

    I have recently gone with a 1X Raceface Next SL and have felt that it has been performing as expected.
