I just upgraded to 1X last week. I went with a 32T raceface chainring up front and the rest GX components. I have been extremely pleased so far. It covers the range of gears I had before but is much simpler. I am hoping to do a side by side comparison soon to show how much better the clutch rear mech alone is. Heres a short video of me trying it out on a local trail in Vernal called Corkscrew.
