How to Convert to a 1 x Drivetrain

What is a 1 x drivetrain and why should you do it?

A 1x drivetrain can be 1x9, 1x10 or 1x11. The number in front of the `x` is the number of your front cogs attached to your cranks, in this case 1 meaning that you only have 1 chainring attached to your cranks. The number after the `x` is the number of cogs on your rear wheel, the latest tech is at 11 cogs, for example 1x10 is a system that consits of one chainring and 10 cogs on your cassette.
