I'm looking at a road bike with SRAM Force AXS 2x crank but would like it as 1x. I see from photos that the spider is separate from the right crank.
Are the 1x vs 2x arms and/or spiders different?
If arms and spiders are the same, I can just replace both rings with a single 1x-specific one. If the arms are the same but the spiders differ, I have to get the 1x spider as well, and if the arms differ I have to replace the whole thing. The seller don't do any customization so I can't ask them to swap.
