    Force CX1 Crankset with SRAM Direct Mount Chainring

    There is very little info available on using SRAM direct mount chainrings on Force CX1 cranks. I wanted a 36t front ring for my wife's bike but the smallest standard ring is 38t. After a lengthy search online, I decided to give it a shot and ordered a 36t direct mount chainring with 6mm offset. It took longer to pull the cranks than it took to swap the ring, but I'm happy to report that it's a perfect match and 50g lighter as well. Chain line is now 1mm closer to the frame, centered on the cassette, and shifting is perfect. Success.
