My current drive train is pretty much used up and needs replacement. I thought with this occasion, I could replace my curret drive train (2 chain rings, 10 speed cassette) with a singe chain ring and 11 speed cassette.
Currently I've got the following parts:
Chainset Brand: Race Face Type: Turbine Sprocket 1: 26 Teeth Sprocket 2: 36 Teeth Cassette Brand: Shimano Type: Deore XT / CS-M8000 Ration chainring: 11-40 Teeth
I would like to get a single chain ring so I can remove a shifter and also gain more space to the ground. It did happen to me quite a few times that the larger chain ring caught a rock or a tree.
What size of chain ring (teeth) would I need so I'd have about the same transmission as with the current setup (especially regarding climbing)?
