1x10 crankset/chainset

Postby MTBUK » Tue Dec 04, 2012 15:12 pm

hi guys...and girls,

Don't suppose any of you would have any recommendations of 1x10 Cranksets/chainsets, other than the xx1, or Sram XO models as they're too expensive for my chuck around bike.... mega exo or hollowtech fitment would be ideal :D

many thanks :)

Shimano double (not double and bash they are heavier) or triple (depending on how you want to do it) and replace the chain rings (the old ones being very sellable). XT or SLX

Yep.

I have a very similar setup (XT M770-10 Triple, Renthal SR4 chainring) and can confirm that it works well.
If you get a thick ring like the sr4, you can use the existing bolts too. The E-13 will require shorter bolts, which are another £10.
