    Noisy Chainring

    I setup my bike as 1x10 with Sram XX1 chaining and KMC X10SL chain (and shimano XTR shadow rear der). The chainring/chain interface is making a loud ruckus while pedaling and it appears to be occurring at the release point on the underside of the chainring between the chain and the thicker teeth. Is everyone/anyone noticed a similar noise? Is it my unique setup?
    Thanks!

Ran through all the bumpy singletracks I could find...zero chain drops! I did my best to make it fail but it worked beautifully. Super happy with this innovation.
    Do you plan to race the RDO? I'm concerned with spinning out on the flats or while descending since the A9RDO is limited to 32 teeth chain ring. Do you have any feedback on that? What about gearing for climbs when your legs are shot such as at the end of a race?

    Well, I figured it out...I needed I new chain. The other was a bit stretched and was causing the noise. I put a new one on and it sounds normal now.

    Got another one converted! :-D Update on my setup: I replaced the 28T bling ring with the 32T sram xx1 ring still no drops but for peace of mind I went with an MRP seat tube mounted guide. Switched the rear cassette to a shimano 12-36 and have managed to climb most of the stuff I need to. Honestly the best thing I've done for my riding hands down was this switch getting away from the 22T front ring!!

    Running xx1 crankset with pg-1070 11-36 cassette, x9 type 2 rd, x0 shifter, and 10 spd chain. Chain stays on no problem.

    This means that you are not using any chaing guide, isn't it ?

    Correct, no chain guide. I ride a rigid steel hardtail. So there used to be a lot of chain bounce. In the 20 or so rides with XX1 and the type 2 I've never dropped a chain and chain bounce is essentially gone.

    Thanks a lot, I'll follow your set up

    I'm thinking of getting the xx1 32t crankset and the xx1chain. My current setup is sram pg1030 cassette 11,36, shimano xt shadow plus derraileur, do you guys think this will work?

    Just use a SRAM 10 speed chain.

    Awesome! I'll use the 10 speed chain. I'm hoping I wont have to change my RD because the one my bike has is a long cage.

    My setup is very similar and has been working fine without a single dropped chain for several months. I've meaured plate width on 10 speed and XX1 chains and can't find a measurable difference, so I think either will be fine. I'd probably stick with 10 speed as you know it matches the cassette. My XTR Shadow+ derailleur is medium cage, but long cage should work fine. Risk of dropped chains is a bit higher with the longer cage and no clutch to reduce cage movement.

    SRAM XX1 cranks and 10 speed

    Got the bike back today from my lbs. Managed to score a deal on the cranks.

    Will take her out for a spin on the trails Friday and see how she runs. So far noise is down the small amounts of time I rode her on the streets.

    For some reason, the SRAM XX1 fit specifications document is not viewable right now.

    Does anyone have the chainline and radius of a BB30 crank with 36t chainring?

    I'd like to put a 30T XX1 chain ring on an XO crankset. What are the current options?

    Is it possible to buy just the SRAM XX1 spider and chain ring? Can you buy an XX1 crankset with a 30T ring? All I can find are XX1 cranksets with 32T rings.

    I see that Wolf Tooth Components has the 32T and 34T direct-mount (spiderless) rings available, and should have the 30T available next month. I like that they also have a bash ring that can bolt to these.

    Are there any other options out there?

    I'd like to use the XX1 crankset with a 32T MRP Bling Ring, e.thirteen chain guide, and a XX cassette. From the reading I've been doing, it looks like I could make that work or I could just use the ring from the actual XX1 crankset.

    Any feedback?

    Why would you do that? Why use a chainguide at all? Why replace a 32t with better retention for one with worse retention?

    Basically, you have XO crankarms with a blingring, with none of the XX1 features. I don't get it.

    Why even bother with the XX1 crank if you aren't going to use it's main feature (stepped chainrings)? Doesn't make sense unless you are getting the XX1 crank cheaper than the other options... and in that case just use the XX1 ring included. If you're dead set on a direct mount chainring at least take a look at wolftooth components... you'd get a stepped chainring then. The MRP bling ring makes zero sense to me at this point with better options available... unless you're just looking for color.

    Thanks. This is what I need to hear. However, without a Type 2 RD, I don't think I can get rid of chain guide regardless of the stepped chainrings.

    Even if you don't have a type 2 rear der how would a bling ring benefit you? Might as well take the money you saved on the bling ring and put it into an X9 type 2 or XT shadow+ IMO.

    So is everyone basically saying, if you go XX1, keep the XX1 front ring and mate it to a type 2 RD and then rid myself of the chain guide?

    The only reason I mention the MRP Bling Ring is because right now I am 1x10 using X9 crankset with bling ring and chain guide.

    Yes. Didn't realize you already had the MRP ring. XX1 crankset w/type 2 should allow you to get rid of the chain guide.

    Hi,
    Does anyone know if the XX1 chain works with a 10 speed cassette ?
    No shifting issues ?

    Why bother? Just get a 10 speed chain.

    Because I already have a 10s chain and it doesn't work that well on the 36th.
    I've seen picture of 10s chain vs xx1 and it seems that the xx1 is way more supple, so it could solve my problem. At least I hope...

    You don't need to have XX1 chainring and crank to have its features.

    absoluteBLACK has simpler and lighter solution as well as a lot cheaper!

    Sram Spiderless

    They will be in stock in 2 weeks in all the colours you need.


    Please note that thick-thin profile is not necessary to hold chain like XX1. We have discovered that simple principle with new tooth profile which allows to bring the costs of manufacturing down and keep the chain like on XX1.
    Our tester - XC Slilver World Champion, miltiple national Champion and CX National Champion Marek Konwa has been using it for 4 months now and they perform Awesome

    The principle of that is simple. We have achieved incredible tight profile of tooth to mesh a chain. It goes in very smoothly, but when meshed with chain it holds it extremely good. In addition tooth profile is directional! That means it prevents the chain from coming off when back pedal or not pedaling at all while descending.

    This is something noone ever done before. Tooth shape is the key to all of that. Alternating tooths just helps further but are not essential.
    Such setup is also on average 150g lighter than spider and XX1 chainring combo.


    It can be used on singlespeed, 1x9/10/11. But when using in 1/9 - 10psd chain must be used! - yes it works really good.
    Please note - photos does not show the newest tooth profile yet. Our Shimoano XX1 rendering is much more relevant in that matter.

    so just to let you know how good they are:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=FQ19arAErsY
    Rider - Marek Konwa. Silver MTB World Champion, National MTB Polish Champion, CX National Polish Champion and so on. It's his personal video, so not moded by me etc.
    you can find it also on his Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/marekkonwa
    and a jump on the bike as well: Marek Konwa DH Wilkowice - YouTube
    If it's good enough for him it will be good for everyone


    and this is to show how good retention this chainring has. It's all about the tooth shape which can keep the chain in place. Only 5 links is enough to hold onto absoluteBLACK chainring!! Regular chainrings require at least double that.

    Try to do it with yours and see result.
