What are the best options for converting my Endo to 1x9? I've seen a few similar posts, so I hate to beat a dead horse if this has been discussed, but I'm looking for options specific to my current set-up, or to find out if it is possible to make the switch without having to get an abundance of new parts. Currently running a Stylo 3.3 crankset with a bash-guard in place of the outer ring. I'd like to keep the bash-guard if I can, and I assume the middle ring position is where I want my soon-to-be only ring to be located, is that correct? Seems that would offer the best chainline for a full range of rear shifting, but I don't know. Is it possible to run another bash-type ring where the current granny exists? Or is that way outta left field? It seems like that is basically what some of the taco-style 1x set-ups are, but this is new territory for me, so I may way off base. I can have an inner bash-type ring made by a friend of mine that makes custom chainrings & guards if that idea is plausible. Basically I'm looking for a way to keep my current cranks & bash-guard in play if possible. Thanks for any advice!
