Not sure this is the right forum but I'll try: I'm building up an '04 Salsa Ala Carte with its rigid fork and discs. I want to try it as a 1x9. Can I use my XT 750 crankset removing the small and large chainrings and then using my XTR 12 32 cassette and XTR 952 rear derailleur? Thanks!

If you're building from scratch a 1x8 might be a better way to go, and look for a chain ring with no ramps/pins - some DH rings are like this - if you get good tension in the chain you might get away with no chain retention devices.
