    1 x 11 chainline on Chili?

    My 2 x 9 drivetrain on my Chili is wearing and in need of replacement soon and I figured this maybe the time to switch to a 1 x 11.

    I'm on the fence between a RF clinch Turbine crankset or a XT 8000 crankset, possible running an Absolut Black 30t chainring. Is there anything special I need to be concerned about to achieve a proper chainline with either crank and bb setup?

    I've gotten confused with direct mounted chainrings and read some threads about offset so trying to figure what is what and will work best with a Chili frame.

    Thanks

    I have a Shimano 1x10 crank w/ RF NW 32t chainring on my Chili and it's all good. I don't think you'll have any issues with a 11x.

    BTW, Jenson is offering an XT crankset w/ BB for $100(!). I picked one up as a spare.

    I am running an XT triple crank with a single RF NW 30-tooth ring and a 1-up 42-tooth cog on my 10-speed cassette. Chainline is perfect and no issues with shifting.

    i've been running XT cranks (2x10, 104bcd) with a gabarut 34T oval ring and 11speed XTm8000 11/42 casette for a year and a half, i used spacers so that the ring would go inwards so that i wont have problems with chain derailing from the first gear (42) when back pedaling, and it hasn't, at least not when i ride....
