    Convert Nomad C to XX1

    I have an 2011 Nomad C (qr rear axle) that I am interested in converting to SRAM XX1 or X01. I have read some reviews of issues (not Nomad specific) where the chain rubs against the frame when in the smallest (10t) rear gear.
    Just wondering if anyone has converted this and if successful, which rear hub you are using?

    What about going with a "budget" conversion and just putting a Race Face Narrow-Wide chainring on the front? It's a lot cheaper.

    I am using a XX1 crank on my Nomadc with no issues. Using a 10 speed cassette, but doubt chainline is that different vs. 11spd.
