Godzuki26 thinks there needs to be a Weightweenie Scott Scale 900 SL build in the USA. So here we go!

Who are you (no off-topic talk please)

Finally, add in the custom carbon fiber BB86 bottom bracket and everything weighs 372 grams. Yes please :thumbup:

Is the chain going to hit the crank arm bolt locations. I know from previous experience that the chain may hit and you may need to modify.

@BmanX - wholly crap I didn't notice the bolts being so close to the teeth. This is a 32T so the wider diameter of the 34T will probably be necessary if the chain hits with this setup. I would really like to keep the 32T so I will check it out later.

I know on Extralite's double rings with the 44/30T set up that I ran for year's that you had to machine in a 45° angle to the side of the spider closest to the chainring for clearance. You might have enough clearance for the chain on your current set up but I would investigate as the side profile shot looks tight but from the top down it might have enough spacing to not be an issue. I run FibreLyte spiderless chainrings on my 29'er so no issues going as small as required.

FL makes spiderless chainrings? That's the first time I see that mentioned, they don't advertise this option on their website. What's the weight?

Nope they do not advertise but I sent my crank arm over and over the years they have made me 2x 32t, 1x 44t and 2x 50t and I love them all. Not sure if the weight but they are amazing

Digirit make carbon dm rings as well. 32t is 61g.

there's certainly better clearance on a 36t ring

I had my spiderless rings built around my older FSA cranks with removeable spider which I have on several builds. I had them all done solid not like the Digirit shown above but I am sure that FibreLyte could do them like the Digirit.

My 32t is 50g and for reference my 32t cheap 1x chainring from Ebay is 44g then you have the spider and bolts on top of that.

My updated English build will be sporting my 44t spiderless 1x with an 11/32 on the back but I also have a spare 32t which I can put on there for a hill climb build which I will do once in a while as a 32/32 set up can climb the side of a wall.

It looks like the chain will clear......barely but seems good. So, I get to keep the 32T. I am glad because I did not want to spend more money on a chainring. I think I am already double over my original build plan budget.

3mm is what I need to have a proper chainline for a Boost 148mm frameset. It seems so minor that I don’t even want to use it. Without it, will it really make that much of a difference on drive train performance and durability? I read somewhere that without the 3mm spacing, there will be premature chain/chainring wear, dropped chains, and bad shifting.

That is so close but thankfully you do not have to do any modifications.

32t clears fine on 104bcd, 30 is the issue.
Why are you only running a 32 with Eagle? 34 minimum.

@Tonytourist - no reason other than asking my neighbor what front chainring he uses on his Sworks Epic. He said he uses a 32t so that is what I went with. I don't have experience with these 1x 50t cassettes as I always ran a 42x26 double front. Maybe I will spin out on a 32t? My neighbor smokes cigarettes and drinks Cafe Sua Da all day long so maybe not the best person to ask for advice. :|
