    SRAM 1x compatibility question (cx content)

    i want to convert my 2x11 system to 1x11. i know i'll need a new crank, cassette & derailleur (to get the size/range i require) but will i need a new shifter?

    I've got a rival 22 shifter, and i plan on using a rival 1x derailleur, so are the 2 compatible? or will i need a new shifter too? both are 11 speed, so they should be ok, shouldn't they?

    also, is there anyway to remove the shifter part of the right hand shifter/brake lever? given that the shifter part will be redundant....

    Why wouldn't they work? You can remove the guts of the shifter but it's the left one you want to do it too....not the right. Also why do you need a crank? Just buy the chain ring...assuming your crank is 110BCD.

    Yes, Rival1 rear derailleur will work with your Rival22 shifters.

    It's a bit tricky to get to the shift mechanism in the left lever but it can be done. A much easier solution is to just remove one circlip and drop the lever out. Then you get the clean look of 1x. The shifter guts will still be in there but it'll save you a heap of time (at the expense of about 40 grams.
