    Truvativ crankset small ring size question

    I have an X9 3x10 crankset on which the smallest ring (granny) is 22T. I have removed the big ring and replaced it with a bash guard. The 22T is too small, I am used to shimano which uses 24T. Is it possible to replace just my 22T ring with a 24T or do I have to replace the whole crankset ? LBS told me I could replace the ring but my bike wouldnt shift well, that the manufacturer designed it to be a 22T. I wouldnt mind switching to shimano but I would have to replace my BB as well, so that is a last resort. Please advise. thanks

    I'm guessing the remaining rings are 22/32 and the change making it 24/32 correct? yes you can replace the spider ring and it will shift a bit diff from what your accustomed too but nothing extreme.

    Ill have to check the parts box when i get home. I might have a 24 tooth off a Truvative Stylo crankset that you can have. It would have the shift ramps on it that wouldnt be on a regular ss 24 tooth ring

    Granny rings don't have shifting ramps.
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.
