Once I heard that no one makes a 1x10 road crank, I had to be the first on the block. Turned a 2x Campy crank into a 1x crank. Was able to eliminate the large chain ring, front derailleur, cables, and installed a KMC ti chain. Chain is a lot smaller and shifts perfectly. Used an old chain ring, cut it, ground it down, primed and painted it to match my Campy carbon crank. O.K., I have to admit, I am a weight weenie, but am sure that I have lost some weight off the bike. I know that I am going to get crap from other cyclist, but do not care. I ride mostly hills and have never used my large chain ring. My bike, a Vellum Edge (-16 lbs), is an incredible riding bike, especially compared to those mass produced Specialized or Trek bikes. Now it's even lighter. I am getting lots of looks and positive comments on the bike, even before I changed the gearing.

I do like my Campy single ring conversion as well.... It's even lighter with a single rear cog!
