    Upgrade 2015 thunderbolt 750 msl to NDR eagle

    I currently have my bike setup as a 1x10 with the original race face cranks but a one up 32 tooth chain ring. I would like to get the new max eagle cassette, derailuer and shifter but I want to keep my cranks and chain ring. I think that should work just fine but I am having some trouble confirming it. Does anyone know or have experience going to a 1x11 set on this bike

    The 10 speed 1x N/W chainrings should work fine with an 11 speed chain. I switched the 2015 Thunderbolt 770MSL from 2x10 to 1x11 Shimano, only changing the chainring to a 1x N/W Cinch direct mount on the Turbine cranks.

    Are you talking about switching to the SRAM NX Eagle 1x12 or the SRAM NX 1x11 setup? All the SRAM cassettes need an XD hub to mount the cassettes, the Thunderbolt 750 MSL had a Shimano cassette.

    I was thinking of the box eagle cassette which is 11-50 and does not require an xd driver it says it uses a splined hub like the shimano Alex that came on the box.

    I meant nx eagle. Damn autocorrect

    ahhhh, the Eagle reference threw me off, Box Two... so this stuff?

    Interesting, I just saw one of the bike shops on Instagram was installing one of these systems and found the shifter cable had some routing issues inside the shifter.
