    New question here. Shimo Slx 2x to 1x HELP NEEDED

    Sup Doods
    I am currently using a shimano slx 2x10 on my trance and im looking for parts to buy for my 1xconversion. (chainring, wider range cassette) Before i go rushing into buying shit i have a few questions:
    1- will the current chainring spider interfear with the teeth on the new chainring?
    2-should i buy a new 104bcd chainring spider? And what is one that will be compatable?
    3- how many teeth should i get on my chainring.
    Also any suggestions for parts that work with this conversion let me know
    Note: Keeping cranks for this upgraded

    Any help appreciated
    Cheers

    The first question is what SLX cranks do you have. I do not know of any Shimano cranks that have removable spiders. So question no 2 is moot.

    1. Depends, I believe the Raceface N/W have an offset for chainrings under 32t that correctly space out the chainring. Even with this I believe you can only run the 30t chainring

    3. That is a very personal choice dependent on your riding ability, type of riding and where you are riding. I am a decent rider, XC mostly riding on a good mix of climbing descending rock roots flow and I run a 32/11-36
