New drivetrain installed tonight. I am very impressed by Wolf Tooth components quality, I got their 40T cog for a XT-M771 cassette and a 16T cog that replaces original 15T and 17T cogs. Shifting seems to be buttery smooth but I have yet to do a proper shake down ride. I installed a new 9sp KMC X9 SL chain with a little extra bling, too (in my experience, 9 speed chains work with 1x10 setups just fine). After a test ride I realized how worn my original 32T chainring was (grinding under load) so I had to replace it with a new one, too. I did a couple thousand miles on it so I guess it was time for a replacement anyway.

Sweet! I'm very happy with my wolftooth narrow/wide chainring. Top quality product for sure.

That thing works fantastic. The chain is superb, light and easy shifting thanks to the side profile of the links (and super cheap to the boot, too - 9sp parts are a bargain these days), the modified cassette shifts as good as the original one, I am a very happy camper. The 40T cog gives me back the last bit of torque that I lost when I switched to flats.
