hi guys,

Just bought a secondhand bike which comes with full SRAM Force 22 (50/34, 11-28), but most parts are quite worn out. In addition, I have already got a PC1170 11-36 and a Rotor Aldhu with 1x chainring sitting at home. I was wondering if i can just swap the RD to a Force/Rival/Apex 1x then ditch the FD and get going. does that work? (will replace chain too). Cheers, :thumbup:
Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes. :thumbup:

Yes, done it many times.

You can also easily take off the left shift lever by removing a circlip. You can even remove the whole shift mechanism, but that's more involved, so I usually leave it in.
