    Single chainring options?

    Hi: I'm gathering parts for a new build and I am leaning towards a single chain ring crank. What are the options available and if you could post a picture that would be great. I'm thinking 22-26T up front with an 11-36 in the rear.
    THANKS!

    my friend and I have talked about doing this due to past

    problems with our MWODs. I am curious to see what cranks are recommended but we were thinking along the lines of 24 or 26 granny ring with a blackspire granny god or a BBG trials bashguard for greater clearance and a much simpler drivetrain. Currently I am running a MWOD 26/33 and my friend runs a 24/33. I will likely take my granny back down to a 22 for the winter but will probably give the 26 a try at least. Due to the MWOD problems I have been running most of the summer with the 26 as my front and a 36-10?? 10 speed cassette in back. Obviously I lose top end for any roads but my fat bike is virtually all trail riding so it has worked better than we expected. To me, these 1x10 and 1x9 setups are like a single speed with options
