Will this work on a 10 speed chain, cassette and RD?


What problems will i have?

- chain fitting properly
- chain line being off

Any help or suggestions on getting a 1x10 going would be appreciated.

Off hand, there no specific reason why it wouldn't. One of the beauties of 1x drive system is that without a front derailleur, there's no restrictions on chainring choices. This allows the use of whatever fing puts your gear rang where you want it.

I'm old school, and long before they started marketing things like "compact drive, or whatever" we set up our bikes with whatever chainrings we wanted. Deb is still riding a 2x10 bike I built in 2001 with 39-45 chainrings, and a 12-26 cassette. It correctly offsets the high end of the range to what she actually uses, and makes for tighter mid range gears. Unfortunately it's hard to find double rings in those intermediate sizes these days, but your 1x system gives you the freedom.
