I have an 09 Scott Aspect 45. I dont ever use 1 up front, and hardly ever use 3. Always in 2 for everything. PLus I could lose a little weight

What is a good conversion for me? Note that I have never done one of these conversions, so list recommended complete kits. Front, rear and chain. etc.

thanks!:thumbsup:

Shorter Chainring bolts.

After you have those things, make sure you take out as many chain links as possible.

That'll make your bike 1x. If you want 1x9, you'll need a new rear derailleur, shifter, cassette, and chain(assuming your bike is still stock).
