    Goblin

    This is my first ride after going 1x. It s been an amazing ride so far. The bike is quieter and a lot less to think about. Why didnít I do this earlier

    Nice! I probably will do this soon too. Do you know the parts you used? My biggest question would be BB compatibility or chain line w whatever 1x drivetrain I get.

    I just bought a 104bcd 30t chainring from raceface. Then removed all the parts for front derailleur and shortened the chain.

    Thanks for the info. I probably need easier than 30/36 to climb though, so would also try to get a cassette. Then would have to figure out how many teeth X7 derailleur can handle. Which I can see turning into a drive train!

    Thatís where u am at now, this was an experiment to see if I liked 1x. Plan is to upgrade my drivetrain to a GX 1x11 with sunrace cassette 11-50 and get a 32-34 for the front

    I went 1x10 too. Absolute Black 30t oval and a OneUp 42t cog addition to X7 cassette. So now my granny is 30/42 which is good for improving my strength up 10-15% climbs that I used to use 22/36. Also using a KS SpeedUp manual dropper. Bike is ~25 lbs, feels great.

    Hi I have a green goblin also and was looking at the new goblin for my girl, can someone explain the difference from the v2.0 SRAM X7 2◊10 and the 1x11 drivetrain? We mostly ride hard pack trails and bike paths, I would actually like alittle more top end speed.

    The Shimano SLX drivetrain that it comes with looks to be 30t front and 11-46t back. For top end gearing, you divide the front toot number by the lowest cassette tooth number. A 30/11 for the hardest gear is considered pretty decent...you will spin out on mild hills, but your speed will be like 20 mph which is probably fast enough. However, I believe the older Goblins with 2x10 came with 38/11...so a much harder gear.

    Additionally 30/46 for easiest gear is pretty good too. I have to work hard to climb 10-15% long fireroads with a 30/42. I'd say the current v3 Goblin they're offering looks like a good deal. At first glance the only things I would change would be to buy a 60 mm stem, maybe wider bars, and change the tires to tubeless Maxxis 29x2.35 Forekasters. Also, an oval chainring might help stretch both ends of the gear range.
