I use this ring on a 1x9 setup using a conventional rear derailleur Shimano XT Shadow (without clutch) and without chain retention device. Yes, I did drop my chain once but after 100+ miles of aggressive mountain biking. I then installed a EThirteen chain retention device before an important race only because I wanted to take no chance with this, but it was most likely unnecessary.
I really wanted to try a 1x10 drivetrain. My bike is a 2011 Trek Fuel 9.0 26'' with 3x10 11-36t cassette and Shimano XT cranks. I never liked having 3 chain rings. Very hard to clean the middle chain ring (If I got a nickel for every time I nicked my knuckles cleaning them) which I used 98% of the time. I hated having to adjust the front derailleur. And sometimes I got confused as to which gear I was in. I went to the LBS and asked them about changing to a 1x10 drivetrain. They wanted me to change cranks, get a new chain ring, chain guide, cassette, and a clutch derailleur (I must have looked really confused). Well thank goodness for Youtube and all the helpful Youtubers. I rode my bike on my favorite trails to determine which gears I could live without. I settled on the Race Face NW 30T to go with my current 11-36T cassette. I took off the front derailleur (Free at last) and removed the chain rings along with a few chain links. I installed the RF chain ring with...
Love it! I went from a 2x10 to a 1x. I replaced my two front (24/38) with this 30T NW. I have an 11/36 in back and all seems well for 90% of what I ride. I ride in the Pacific NW Washington. So it's a lot of trail single track, mountain climbs and of course DESCENTS! I will struggle a little more than before on the steepest climbs, but I get so much more in return. No more front derailleur or shifter. I made room for my dropper post lever. Now the controls are more simple. I coupled this RF NW with a rear clutch derailleur and now my chain is not gonna come off any more!!!! I used to drop chains on every ride and slap my chain stay constantly... NOT ANYMORE! To make this even better, the LIME GREEN matches my bike too! When my rear cassette needs to be changed, I will go to something around 40T for a granny low. Then, I think this will be perfect... Installation was easy too. I coupled the RF NW with my Shimano Deore Hollowtech cranks and it's like they were made for each other! I...
