    11' Trance X - chain guide low or high mount seat tube mount?

    Looking into possibly going to 32T 1x10, but was looking at some chain retention guides, and see that there are 2. My bottom bracket is Press Fit , so I am looking at the seat tube mount types. I am thinking I need a low mount correct?

    While I have you here, do you know if I need to get new chain ring bolts? going from 3x10 to 1x10? If I do which ones are the correct size that I will need to properly secure the new chain ring.

    I currently run this setup low mount on the very same bike, low mount comes with a rotational "shim" which allows you to move the entire mount in and out from seat tube. Renthal ring (34T) on SLX cranks. You may need single ring bolts I can't remember.

    It transforms ride. I can check tonight after I ride what specific things were required, if I think of it I'll snap a pic if you'd like. Good luck, and great choice in bikes
