    9 speed will work fine. For that matter, since you are going 1X pretty well any crankset with removable rings will work. Avoid a double crank, the chainline isn't as good.

    You should take all 3 rings off and replace the single ring with a single speed or narrow wide ring. The rings that come on the crank will drop the chain too easy - they are designed to derail the chain for shifting. Sell the new rings that came on the crank.

    Your down grading. there is nothing wrong with 3x8. and by going 1x youll have less high end and low end gearing youll need a chain device or an expensive front ring. All to have less gearing options. Why are you going 1x again??
