    possible to run XX1 without the Sram cranks?

    Just put the chainring on another crankset? or would the Qfactor be screwed up?

    Not sure what I am looking at here? These don't look like sram profile teeth.. wouldn't that eliminate the chain retention function?

    Or you just run 1x9 or 1x10 like people have been doing for years. Run an upper guide and you'll be fine. Will have leftover money to buy nice tires too.

    XT cranks w/ a single speed chainring have been working great w/ my XX1 so far.

    Race Face should have rings soon. Maybe I can just bolt one of them on my 3x9 Deus in the middle position and I'm good?

    I'm using a 32 tooth black spire ring. No retention issues yet.

    I'm running a 33t Rotor ring with a bash guard but nothing on the inside and have only lost my chain once in 6 rides. It was while climbing with the derailleur out of adjustment.
