    '13 Reign - Converting to 1X10

    I want to convert my bike to 1X10 and have a few things I'm not so sure about.

    If I remove the chainrings up front, as it currently has SRAM S1000, 24/38 and would like to put maybe a 34 (or even less), would the crank still work with only one chain ring? I want to put the chain ring on the inner so that it works well with the casette in the back. (I found that the outer chain ring is causing undue stress on the chain when in the outer chain ring and the big cog in the casette.)

    Anywho, what kind of specs do I need for the smaller chain ring? all I know is it uses 4 screws. lol

    thanks

    Look at a Race Face Thick Thin or Narrow Wide chain ring. It fits in place of the 38, I'd imagine your cranks are 104BCD for the middle/outer chainring fitting and I've not seen any using the granny ring mounts when converting to 1x10 . You could look to see if you have spacers on your bottom bracket drive side that could be swapped to the non drive side to optimise the chain line with your existing cranks. I found a 32T is nice for climbing on my Reign X 1x10 using an 11-36 cassette. Though you may prefer a 34T, dependant on what trails your riding and how fast you like to go .

    PS check this post Race Face Narrow Wide Installation differences 30t vs 32t
    looks like you could get a larger ring for the granny mounts.
