    First ride with M8000 1X11

    Converted my Turner Fluxís (2008) triple drivetrain to a 1X11. Went with Shimano XT M8000. Set up works great! Iím using Race Faceís narrow wide 34 tooth, I wanted to get some faster speed with the 11 tooth cog. I went with a 40X11, decided the closer spacing would shift smoother.
    I feel with a 26er, a 34 tooth is tolerable. Also helps to push myself more on the hills.
    On my maiden voyage, I set 10 PRís on Strava.
    Coming from a non-clutch derailleur, the Shadow+ has absolutely zero chain-slap. Itís new to not hear the chain, although I havenít had to worry about it with Lizard Skin wraps. Only thing is I feel the shifting takes a bit more effort.
    Bottom line, I feel this is a great upgrade. Total was ~$250.
    All I need is a magic link.

    I have the same 2008 turner flux tnt w the green color! I converted my santa cruz nickel to xt 1x11 and it shifts smoother than other 1x10 shimano xt systems I have had. Mess w the fine adjuster at the shifter some, I bet you will find the sweet spot. Might be derailleur hanger is bent? Chain to long? I think I will set up the flux w 1x10 extended cog and lose the 3x10 I have now. I love the way the flux climbs and it does just fine on the downhill even w the steeper head angle.
