    Show pics of your 1x9 setup

    On a 9 speed. Unsure how to go about that. You would need to find a cassette that you can remove a single sprocket. Probably the 17t. I'm using 1x10 now with a one up 42t. Check ebay often you can find wolftooth, one up and e13 ring quite cheap on there.

    I have a cassette that I believe I can remove a single sprocket. These e13 and oneup and wolftooth all appear to say 10 speed. Can it also be used with 9 speed?

    I don't see why not. My crankset said 10spd and I used it 1x9 for ages before switching.

    I would think a 9spd chain will work ok.

    Id be real interested if that works. I was under the impression that 10 sp. cassettes had a closer distance between each ring compared to a 9 sp. So, you'd have to have a 10 sp. shifter as well?
    Then of course that wouldn't be a 1X9 anymore.

    as I understand it, it should work. essentially I will remove some middle cog from the cassette to make room for adding the 40t cog. Some custom shim might be required to back the 40t off the (existing) 34t, but I think that shim might be included with some of these 40t gears.

    Let's just pretend this thread is called 1xN and is dedicated to any single front ring, rear derailer based, chain drivetrains.

    Bordershy, nice! What I like the best there is that no exotic parts are used.

    The Blackspire GrannyGod was a tough find. I did put a double bend in the stinger bracket to put the chain in the grove of the roller.

    I would love to build a 40-11 9sp cassette if it wasn't such a pain money wise.

    So I currently have a 2x9 setup. I don't need my highest gears. If I went absolute black 26t 64bcd chain ring. What would I need out back? I currently have a x7 with 11-34 cassette. I was looking to go 1x10 but 1x9 would work fine. If I can get a new cassette and knock the bottom ring off and use a different lock nut awesome. This thread is huge so sorry if this is repeated.

    I know about the SRAM shifter with Shadow+ combination, that is my next upgrade.
    Will a 9 speed sram shifter work with this? That would save if I only had to get the clutch derrailuer. This is the first I have heard of this. I thought Sram 1x1 actuation had to work with Sram. Please inform me more about this. Looks like I have lots of reading to do now that I have found this thread.

    No real "cheap" way to convert a 9spd with an add on cog. Least "inexpensive" way is a Shimano HG61 12-36t 9 spd cassette and adjust your front ring down a size to give you the same gear as you would with the 40t granny setup.

    Yes. SRAM 9 spd works to shift a Shimano 10 spd Dynasis clutch derailleur using a 9 spd cassette and chain. Most only need a slight adjustment on the cable clamp attachment. Lots of posts in here about that setup.

    Hey guys, thought I could ask here instead of creating a new thread; I have Shimano Altus 3x8, I'm thinking of buying the Shimano Saint Crankset to go 1x8. Do I need anything else? My rings are riveted so my only option (well, I don't want to drill out the rivets) is to get a new crankset.

    As long as the new ring can run an 8 spd chain.

    Ohh well I feel stupid, thanks god I asked. Sorry I'm new on this xD. Would this work: Shimano Deore 10 speed s+ r d (says dyna-sys), 10 speed casette (CS-HG62), Zee shifter and Saint crankset?

    Any 8,9 or 10 speed chainring will work with a 8 speed chain, so you can pretty much install any crankset with any chainring and it should work with your with your current setup.
    You may want to also change the chain to a 9 or 10 speed if the 8 speed chain is not flexible enough and gives you trouble in the extreme high or low gears of the cassette.

    If your current crankset handled your riding then a Saint is probably overkill and any Shimano mountain crankset will do the job.

    Nice Thanks, and yes is definitely an overkill but a deore crankset(ie) is only $10 cheaper haha

    I'm using a saint crank on a 1x10. Def overkill but I like the security that it ain't gonna break being a heavier weighted man.

    Here is my 1x9 conversion, with a little help from Wrath of Khan, who posted a while back on his conversion on his similar bike.

    It is a 2001 Specialized Enduro, with BETD linkage and many other upgrades. I switched out the old E-type BB with a regular, old school taper spindle BB so I could use my old cranks. The Raceface 30t NW ring fit perfectly. I got the bolt shims, but ended not needing them, since the chainring bolts I had (also raceface from a set of Turbine rings) fit perfectly.
    I am still using my original XT rear rear d/r (non clutch).

    It all works very well, super quiet, no skipping and so far, no dropped chains. Even on some rough, rooted trail, no issues.

    Rockhopper 1x9

    Hi everyone I'm new to this forum but been lurking for a long time.

    Thought I would share my 2008 Rockhopper that I converted to 1x9 a year ago. 32 tooth RF N/W ring, new SLX 11/34 cassette and new chain is all I added. lost about 600g losing all the other stuff.

    Kept the deore long cage RD with no chain retention device and only dropped the chain on gnarly descents. Borrowed the Sram x9 short cage RD and shifter off my downhill bike for a while and that made a huge difference, crisp shifts no dropped chains.

    Ive had the deore RD back on now for about 6 months and not dropped a chain once, even in the same places that it used to fall off! Weird. This setup has covered just over 1000kms and going strong.

    Here are some pics when I first installed the gear.

    Apologies for the one sideways pic, computer deficient skills.
    Rides like a dream, only gripe is a bit of bob standing and mashing, would like RP23 tuned to actually lockout, right now lockout means nothing! Typical RP23 problem...Frame was exactly 6.02lbs bare, medium size. Rides faster than my old On One Scandal hardtail when climbing! I can't really explain why, but it does, it seems to almost self-propel itself a little, don't know why! Love it.

    Wifey's bike as it should have come from the factory. RF n/w cr. Never skips and she thinks it's pretty. The stock 11-34 cassette is fine. She never used the 34, it's pretty flat around here. But we went with 165mm cranks, which is like going down a tooth in the back, so it worked out.

    In terms of cranks, there are some nice RF units on ebay for about $140, with ring and bb. However I think the best deal out there right now are some XT Deore cranks on pricepoint for $130 with bb. Got some for my bike, put the rings up on ebay, they are going for $11 right now. Plus I could sell the bb. Winds up being a great deal, and those XT crankarms are niiiiice, they feel lighter than the RF units. Love the Hollowtech, just don't forget to order that $2 "bearing preload bolt" tool.

    Wellgo magnesium pedals, just a stupid good deal. Light, grippy, pretty colors. Cheap enough to buy a new pair every season.
