    XTR(M950-952) crank SS Convert Help I searched first.

    I have a pair of XTR M950 & 952's and want to convert a pair to single ring for my SS.

    Converts XTR 952 cranks to large-format 5-arm (110/94, I think).

    Works quite well. Run whatever brand ring you want, and you can put a bash guard on it.

    Oh nice NRS! I checked out the Boone rings, but $110 a piece? Yikes!
    I can buy a pair of Truvativ SS cranks for that.

    TA specialties makes rings for XTR, I'm not sure if they're availlable in the US though.

    Don't touch AC spiders for singlespeeding! DON'T! I had one and it shattered into three pieces during a tough climb. It might hold up if you add a bashring and a granny gear to give the spider additional support. Use a spiderless ring from Boone or Spot, or get a Shimano spider.

    well, if jericho was still around, I'd reccomend that, but since they're not, the Spot ring is perfect, and not the price of a Boone. http://www.spotbikes.com/

    sorry for not linking direct- apparently they're redoing the website. according to the pdf'ed catalog, the spiderless xtr only comes in 35t now (wtf???)

    I was looking for some spiderless rings yesterday and the Spot only had a 34t, by which I would need to replace my 16t WhiteBro freewheel too.
    I may consider the XTR spider so I can fit it into my Student budget.

    Nashbar has the Shimano 5-arm spider for $44.95. That's a whole lot less than used ones sell for on Ebay. But with a 110mm BCD you won't go smaller than 34T.

    I bought a Shimano 5 arm and it works great. It is compact so you don't have to run a monster gear up front.

    Mine was ~ $45.00 new at my LBS.
