We converted a 2×10 drivetrain to a 1x set-up on Tyge’s bike with a non-boost hub. Before we started, our friend Steve from Hyland Cyclery took a look at the bike to help us identify all the tools and parts we needed. I was glad to find out we could save some money by keeping the original crankset and shifter. As you’ll see in the video, this is obviously the first time we’ve done something like this.

If you’d like to try a similar upgrade for a bike your family owns, be aware that drivetrains are different from bike-to-bike and your project will almost definitely require different parts. Ours ended up with parts from SunRace, Shimano, SRAM, and WolfTooth. If you’re not comfortable taking inventory and assessing what you need, we bet your local bike shop can help you out. Watch the video and Tyge will take you through what he did.
