    Guidance on SRAM/Shimano 1x11 drive train build

    Hi,

    I am planning on going 1x11 by next year and I would like to get your opinion on my planned build. It's a budget build so I wont go XX1 or XTR except for the chain.

    So, here's my plan:
    RD: Sram GX1
    Shifter: Sram X1
    Cassette: XT 11 speed, 11-40 or 11-42
    Chain: xt or xtr

    anything I need to change out?

    You could save some cash by buying a SunRace 11-42 cassette. They're about $30 cheaper than Shimano XT M8000 and are close in weight if you buy the CSMX8 instead of the all steel CSMS8. Same gearing and can be run on a normal free hub. The KMC 11 speed chains are also a little cheaper too.

    Becareful with the Sram crank set. Depending on the frame, but I aim using the Scram set 1x11 and the chain-line is terrible. Scram does not have the a just ability to move the front ring from one side to the other with shims like you can with Shimano. Scram on my new Trek is terrible and the Scram Factory pretty much said " yeah it is junk but that is what it is" I am trying to get the shop I bought the bike from to put XT on it.
