I converted my 2014 Edict to a 1X10 with a 32T narrow wide chainring. A couple youtube videos were a big help. I'll hit the trails tomorrow to see how it does. The 38/24T 2X front chainrings that the bike came with weren't doing it for me. Frankly, since the 38 was so high I was leaving the bike in the small ring and that was making it too easy on short climbs, by keeping my lazy butt in the seat. Hoping this will shake things up a bit.

So far so good, this definitely woke up the bike a bit, drivetrain noise is higher as expected. I was getting some chain slap on my first lap so I took one more link out. That stopped the chain slap but I am keeping an eye on it to make sure it's not too short now. XTR with clutch on the back so the chain tensioning is good.
