    2013 Satori single ring?

    Anyone gone to a single chainring on the front? little confused about BB standards and Want go to a single chainring in the front.
    Question- will SRAM x9 crankset GXP (want to use direct mount chainring) work if I order a SRAM pressfit 92 BB?? Or anyone else have a better idea on what to use that doesn't cost a lot?

    Thanks a lot!

    Thats the set-up I have on mine. Double ring, though.

    2013 Satori single ring?

    I think you could just slap on a narrow wide single ring from wolftooth or raceface on the original crank and keep the 10 speed 11-36 cassette.

    I ran a 1X9 on my 2012 initially and it worked great but I'm not strong enough to make it up all the local climbs so I switched to 2X10.

    I have thought about ditching the second ring up front and putting one of those wolftooth 42 tooth rings in back to maintain some semblance of climbing ability for the steep stuff.
    To appreciate the flowers you must also walk among s**t to know the difference
