The same yes.
Is it just the same guess I had looking at the 2x frameset/setup ?
I've seen the Venge Lunch Race that is a 1x11 SRAM X-Sync build that has still its braze-on derailleur clamp so I was sure that it's based on a regular Venge frame. But 1x Sprint don't have the 2x braze-on clamp so ... just our guess.
Anyway, at my humble level of knowledge, I would conclude it's just a matter of chain line. 1x mountain bike crankset on converted frame try to put the solo ring in the right alignment to be able to shift the whole cogs quietly.
Try eBay for used shifters and derailleurs. Or local Facebook cycling buy and sell groups.
Plenty. Praxis, fsa etc.
Thanks, but I was looking for a more precise models and parts. Used is always cheaper than new parts, for conversion to 1x, iPhone case, towels, etc.
Maybe my questions were not precise enough, I apologize. I'll try to be more detailed for the next ones.
My worry is mainly that the process to sticking only 1 ring on a crank can lead to chain-line issue. As it was experienced by a Venge Lunch Race owner who swapped its Specialized X-Sync 54T with a Race Face 44T :Early feedback on Venge Lunch Race?
As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve swapped the 52t X-Sync chainring for a Race Face n/w 44t. Paired with the 11-28 11spd cassette, I’m really liking my gear options for training rides so far. The 52t ring is actually offset to the inside a few millimeters in order to get a friendlier chainline than the RF ring offers in the larger cogs. There are a few popping sounds here and there under power in the high side of the cassette, but overall I like the simplicity and the weight savings.
I'd like to find the right set of parts to use in order to avoid getting chain noise going from 2x11 to 1x11. It'd be a terrible move, wouldn't it ?
Looking at 1x Sprint builds that Specialized has in catalogues for 2 years now, I know that a simple but costly solution is get hands on parts from 1x SRAM group and go ride ... but do I have another choice ? This solutions (Force 1 or Rival 1) force me to throw my brifters and rear derailleur, aren't they ?
I was looking for a similar to my Jekyll conversion process. Drop the front derailleur and its cables/guides, get an offset 48T ring. Keep everything else unchanged. Even a $100 48T ring with the right chain-line would be cheaper than Rival 1x : Rear derailleur alone is $100 online and I'm still missing crankset-with-ring, shifters, maybe new guides/cables if I cannot fit the current.
I could also get the EC90 SL Crankset ($450 without BB) with Easton 48T but it will be very expensive and maybe with a Gravel/CX-specific chain line. I'm will need for information on these CX solutions also.
