    Who's running a 1x10 SJ FSR?

    Really thinking of going to a 1X10 set up (currently have a 2x10) as I only use about half the gears any ways. Just wondering the easiest way to go about it, peoples opinions on it, maybe some pics? I ride pretty tight east coast woods and like I said don't use half the gears and would like a cleaner look and maybe shed some easy weight. I cant afford Sram XX1 btw. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have a clutch style R/D just buy one of these 104 BCD Chainrings | wolftoothcomponents.com & go ride your bike.

    ^^This. I use a standard XO (non Type 2) on mine with no issues, but on a FS I assume you are jumping more etc. and the Type 2 will be a better choice. Also keep in mind, you should use a med. or short cage if you can.

    At the very least pick up a Raceface wide/narrow ring and put it on the stock crankset. It will help keep the chain on 100x better than a ramped ring that is designed for shifting.

    It's what I did on my Enduro to run it 1x10. It dropped a lot of weight, works perfect and looks really clean.
