The current chainset is a Shimano Acera M371 (48/36/26) triple - from what I can gather this is an all-in one unit and will need replacing as the chainrings cannot be removed.

So I'm looking for some suggestions for a cheap(ish) replacement Single 36T chainset with Narrow/wide teeth as I plan to ditch the front derailleur and shifter.

I have no idea what the bottom bracket model is (it's not listed on the spec sheet) and I'm hoping I can get away with out replacing it to keep cost to a minimum.

Perhaps there are some hidden pitfalls I'm unaware of, therefore any feedback/help is much appreciated.


You really have to nail the gearing on a 1x setup, especially if you ride up and long.
