    Zee Chainring in 1x8 drive?

    Hi my mate handed me a Zee 10 speed single chainring and i am planning a 1x8 rigid MTB? Can i use that Zee chainring in a 1x8 drivetrain featuring 8 speed chain and RD and not have shifting issues? Would the chain be more likely to drop off the ring up front for example? Oh ya crankset is a Shimano Hone Hollowtech II which is a triple and i would convert to a single if the Zee chainring idea is good to go

    In the past i've used a 10spd Ultegra ring with an 8spd chain and 8spd everything else for a while. No issues.
    I'd probably go with a narrow wide ring tho especially if you will be using a non clutch rear derailleur.
    But IMO unless you live somewhere completely flat I don't think 1x8 is a good idea...

    Wow thats good to hear! Well reason i wanted to go wif 1x 8 is because i managed to get hold of a nice wide range 11-40T Sunrace 8 speed cassette
