I'm pretty new to the MTB game and I wondering if anyone could help me out.
I have a Niner RIP9 that currently has TruVativ Stylo GXP Crank that I would like to change to a 2x10 to help out with my chain suck issues (that is common with RIPs).
With that said I'm understand that I can get the top gear taken off and get a bash guard put on as an "easy" conversion? I do understand this isn't the best way to fix my issue and that getting a true 2x10 would be the better choice however I currently do not have that in my budget.
So I have a few questions when it comes to converting my stylo to a 2x10.
1) Bash guards, overall I'm a little lost. I see there are different types is that just for appearance? I also notice that some makers have sizes however others do not. Can anyone point in the right direction on which bash guard I should get?
2) Do I need/have to change my detrailer and/or shifters? Or is the current one okay?
Just incase it helps here is a list of my drivetrain:
TruVativ Stylo GXP Cranks and Chainrings
SRAM X9 Rear Deraulier
Shimano XT front
SRAM X9 shifters
Thanks for your help.
