    Converting RM Altiude to 1x10

    Hi guys,

    Need your help on this. I've got a 2012 RM Altitude 70 and the current setup is 3x10 and planning to convert it to 1x10 but quite confuse especially on the chain guide on which to put on. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Best bet is one of these MRP 1x guides in the direct mount version so it sits where your FD did.

    I ended up purchasing a Widget Chain ring to convert to 1x10 on my slayer, no chain guide needed.

    I have one of the Race Face Narrow Wide's on my Slayer, works really well, no chain guide needed there either.

    I too have a narrow wide and it works well but I had to shim it inwards BIG TIME.

    Running a straitline silent guide, with a bb adaptor. Works good, but will be replaced with a narrow wide ring soon.

    Xx1 on my Altitude. No guide no problem. Narrow wide chain ring and clutch derailleur make the magic happen.
