1x11 MTB conversion, rear hub?

Postby Mulger bill » Tue Jan 09, 2018 1:56 pm

G'Day

CRC has a killer deal on an M7000 drivetrain upgrade group.

Currently running 2015 SLX 3x10 on a SRAM 406 hub.

Is it a bolt on or will I have to throw a rear wheel upgrade into it?

Oh...
BB. The frame (Voodoo Wanga) is the "correct" standard so just a suitable HTII unit?

Thanks in advance

Shimano 11-sp. will go straight on, as the back of the cassette is dished to allow it to fit the standard hub. SRAM cassette will need a new freewheel body to accommodate the 10T top gear.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

Yup. Have successfully converted a 3x9 bike to 1x11 shimano XT without changing wheels or cranks.

Yeah...
Arrived Friday, went for the install today.

All good, but...
Cut the chain a link or two short.

what a sec...
Did you double post this....
i've been answering on the the wrong post


SO I DID A LITTLE EDIT ...


How did you do that?
you only have to wrap it around one chainring
and over the largest Cassette Cog , and thru the clutch Derrailleur
really , really hard to !! BAN ME NOW FOR SWEARING !! up
plus with joining quicklinks ... Even for Shitmano.....
you could have ridden it long and recut, without issues

Followed the standard procedure, ring and big cog without the mech and add a link. Get the feeling my hand slipped between measuring and grabbing the chainbreaker

No big deal, we've all done it. Or cut cable housing just that little bit too short, or crimped the crimp end just that little bit too much until its no longer recognizable as a crimp end. No biggie, just means you have a spare, short-ish chain floating around.

For future reference, that's a crap method of chain measurement. I don't care if it's suggested by some component manufacturers, it's still a crap method. Always include the derailleur in your measuring to ensure you've got a margin for safety, especially if rear suspension is involved.

i'm with this, that method may have been good when there was 2 chainrings and 5 to 9 speed casstte , with a narrow range , and road short cages , it not work on modern mountain bikes ... see link
