    Dropping or increasing 1x11 Sram chainring by 2 teeth...no adjustments needed?

    I have a stock 32T 1x11 on front. I have both a 30T and also a 34T Eagle chainring set sitting here.

    1. Is the rear mech okay to use either without any adjustments?

    2. I'm fairly sure the Eagle xx1 chainrings are backwards compatible with 1x11 stuff, right?

    Maybe. For sure it will work with the 30t but if the chain is sized on the tight side with the 32t it may not be ideal on the 34.

    Pretty sure everything is backward compatible too.

    The eagle chainring actually has a weird tooth profile that is optimized for the eagle chain. But if you use both of those with an 11 speed cassette you're OK.

    So I can't use an eagle chainring with 11-speed X01 everything else?

    On a 2nd note, I went to install a new chain today, and cut it one link short! doh! I measured twice too, still cut it wrong.

    So now I'm thinking of keeping it, and putting it on when I drop down from 32T to my 30T ring. One link, for 2 teeth, shouldn't be an issue right?

    Eagle chainring works great with an 11 speed drivetrain. I've used both 11s rings and an eagle ring on my 11s bike and can't tell the difference.
