Is my understanding correct, that I can't use my 10/11speed cranks anymore with the 12speed Sram chain?

I've already an Rotor 2IN Powermeter I'd like to use.

You’ll just have to wait for 3rd party chainrings unless you use an AXS eagle chain and Eagle cassette, that setup is compatible with normal chainrings

Best guess is 270g for the pair. I have a set coming in pretty soon and will confirm.

Force AXS rim shifters are 303g.

has anyone tried to pair the Force AXS with a Garmin 935?
i have paired them successfully earlier under shifting and it seems there can only be 11 gears.
presets appear to have 11 gears only and i cant seem to find an option to make it 12 under the Custom tab/pane

it does show me what gear number i am in (#2 for example but the tooth count is incorrect)

Looks like Wolf Tooth has begun offering their 110 BCD Flat Top Chain compatible 1x rings.

It doesn't specifically state that their Eagle-only, rather they show compatibility with both the SRAM 12 speed Eagle and Flat Top chains. Interesting.....

I would stay away from rings that are compatible with everything under the sun. flattop chains require a different tooth cut and would compromise the normal chain interface.

I am using the Wolftooth Flat Top specific 1x ring. Runs very smoothly. Obviosuly being 1x shifting isn't an issue, but it is silent.

I really wanted the SRAM direct mount to fit my Cane Creek EE Wings but it wasn't available at the time and the eliptical rings still aren't. I keep an eye on the site........

I paired a Garmin Edge 1000 with Eagle AXS that I setup on one of my wife's bikes. On initial pairing with the sensor the Garmin wouldn't allow me to have more than 11 cogs on the cassette or less than two chainrings. However after shifting gears across all 12 cogs on the cassette, I could then setup a custom cassette with 12 gears on the Garmin and set the cog teeth sizes correctly. For the single chainring, I set both chainrings that the Garmin initially thought I had to the same number of teeth, and it recognised that as being a single chainring - the gears bar graph data field on one of the data screens correctly shows me a single chainring and 12 cogs on the cassette, and the gear combo field also shows the correct cogs size for each gear as I change across the cassette.

thank you
seems i need to go through the whole gear range for the garmin to recognize 12s
are you also able to set the tooth count on each cog?
will try to pair again later after work and see how it goes

Just built this for a customer.

Must admit that after a test ride, I'm pretty much sold on AXS! It's super fast up and down the cassette, only real issue is bulky front mech (very close to cranks) and noisy compared to Di2.

I find the opposite. It's much quieter than my 8070 Di2. Not sure why...
