    Hyperglide + chains rings

    I have a new Shimano crankset - the FC-MT900-1. Its a 1 x 12 that I had planned to use with a new Shimano 12 speed drivetrain. Plans have changed and now I going with a SRAM 11 speed drivetrain - chain, cassette and rear mech. Can I still use this crankset with the SRAM setup? I am willing to replace the chainring but having a hard time finding one to fit it and still work with an 11 speed drivetrain. Am I out of luck with this or can I run an 11 speed chain on this Shimano chainring as is?

    Yeah, I hoped it would!
    How about using this Connex 11s black edition chain with it? I really like how the connex chains wear and look on my other bikes so leaning toward this over a SRAM chain as well.

    Yeah, pretty much any chain will work on it. The retention may not be quite as good as others, the wide teeth are a little less wide than most n/w chainrings but you probably won't notice.
