    making changes to 2011 Reign 0

    I have a 2011 Reign 0 I got in 2012 as just frame and rear shock. I had removed parts from my 2005 Reign 2 to get this rolling, the old reign had bad bearings and ruined the rear triangle.
    anyway
    currently have an 05 race face evolve xc 2x crank and 9 speed rear. Spank Oozy wheels with hope pro evo2 hubs. I've pieced together parts to go 1x11 but not sure if im gonna need a new bottom bracket or what to get.
    new parts:
    Shimano xt crank
    OneUp 32t oval ring
    box components 11-46 cassette
    XTR shifter and rear derailleur
    kmc 11sl gold chain

    am I still missing parts?

    sorry dont have a lot of clue, just ride them

    thanks!!

    box components 11-46 is just an overpriced sunrace cassette

    why XTR stuff? Get XT across the bank and use the saved money for a dropper post

    i would go for a Sram GXP 1000 / 1400 crankset (better chainline than shimano xt)
    49mm vs 50mm, you will need a GXP bottom bracket though

    as Steel Calf said, i wouldn't waste money on a XTR rear derailleur, i find it's worth it on the shifters though (personal preference)

    i second Sunrace 11-46 (Box Components confirmed their cassettes are made by SunRace)
    Get a Sram chain, they seem to have "lesser" issues with backpedaling.

    I agree with not wasting money but I was able to get the derailleur and crank for 40% off each, m8000 and m9000. So I had went for it. I thought about race face turbine, my fat bike has cinch mount chainrings but the xt was a deal.
    I'll check out the sunRace cassette, I do like the black cogs

    black cassette cogs mean business and make you stronger on the ascent

    Yes they do, and so much faster while coasting.
