Hello everyone, I've got a specialized Crosstrail elite. I want to get rid of the front Mech and go for a single front chainring. It's a 68mm BB shell but needs a 73mm BB with spacers. It currently has a FSA Modular VDrive Crankset, 44/32T. 10 speed chain! FSA do a Modular single chainring which is only 38T. I'm looking to go larger, Minimum of 44T. I'm looking at changing the crankset to Shimano, including the BB. But if i want a bigger chainring, it seems, i'll need to go for a Road Crankset. But because road canksets run on a 68mm BB I won't get the clearance at the chainstays. I have tried this option. The Spindle length isn't as long as MTB cranks. If I go with a MTB Crankset, I can't seem to get a chainring over 38T. Which is too small. I'd also need to run A narrow wide ring to decrease the risk of chain drop. I'm going around in circles here. Is anyone here running a single Chainring on an MTB crankset which is over 44T? Hope this all makes sense! I'm tired and confused. Any advice would be grateful. Trev.
