Wait a minute! 42t is as small as you can go 1x and SS?! I gotta run a 34 1x and a 36 ss. Am I SOL here?
1x doesn’t have a chainring limitation. The derailleur drops the chain down low and easily clears the stay.
SS you need to run at least a 42 up front and vary the rear cog is to get the ratio you want. Anything smaller in front and you risk hitting the yoke with the chain.
