    1 x upgrade Trek 930

    Can anyone please help with a parts list or kit to upgrade my 1990s Trek 930 to a 1 x drive train

    My budget is $200 max, not sure if this is realistic?

    Thanks!

    Take off the front derailleur and select one of any 2 or 3 gears on the crank you want to use. You may have to shorten the chain so might cost you $5 for a quick link.

    I was building this in winter. My CD F600 is now 1x10. I bought a narrow wide chainring and a X9 type2 rd (10spd). My costs for this were around 100

    I guess I'll keep the current set-up.

    Can anyone recommend changing the front shifter from friction to a index? It's a suntour Xpress power control.

    The rear cassette shifter is already index.

    You should be able to pick up a clutch derailleur, wide ratio cassette, shifter, chain and narrow wide chainring for $200. Microshift Advent 1x9. Probably a shade more for new chainring bolts and chain.

    Decided to just leave it stock as 3x7. I realized I mostly ride on the middle ring and really only use the other two for going up or down hills.
