    looking for advice

    Ive been riding a 2014 3x9 trek x-caliber 8 xc bike for all of my mtb career. Im in love with my bike and I would never consider ditching it, but the 3x9 has got to go. I am constantly replacing the chainrings because they are bent and the front derailleur is rubbing the chain at somepoints. I need a little guidance on what 1x groupset I should purchase for my hardtail.

    Heres the link to my bikes specs: https://archive.trekbikes.com/us/en/...iber_8/details

    Going 1x is a great idea. I'm not and expert on converting, but if you want to look at gearing comparisons, here are a couple of helpful sites:
