I have a 2016 Specialized Epic comp 29er mountain bike that has a 2x10 drive train. I’d like to upgrade to a 1x11 (instead of a 1x10 wide ratio) drivetrain to drop the front derailer and also make room for an internal dropper post routing.
I see complete kits for both SRAM or Shimano with what appear to be all the parts: crankset and single cog for the front New 11 gear cassette New rear derailer New gear changing switch + cable new chain
I’m nervous to drop the coin on a new set to find out it won’t fit? how do I know: 1) if my Specialized hi Lo hub is big enough to receive the 11 gear cassette? 2) that my frame is the right size to fit this? 3) is there something else I haven considered?
