Could you expand on this? Why should I? I guess I'd need to spend some extra money on it.

Because you DON'T need front mech, trust me. Because everybody everywhere already usong 1x and will never go back.
Extra? I don't think so. You will spend even less.

By the way, you'll also sell your front shifter and mech, so ..

And do I need some adapter to mount the single chainring on a bike that had two?

adapter? No. As far as I remember, your crank system has 104 and 64 bcd. So, you'll install NW to 104. Maybe, just 1% of 100, you'll need spacers (between chainring and crank), but we'll know that only when installing. But, even without spacers, IF they needed, you'll be fine.

One more thing - you don't have to but you'd better get simple chain guide (top ). NW works without chain guide but - safety is never enough. ))

I'm in Europe, will probably buy from bike-discount (unless you have a better suggestion).
There's too much choice and I don't really know what to buy.

Thank you

I'd search for better prices on:

https://www.bike24.com/


https://www.bike-components.de/en/


Also, they have PriceGuarantee systems.

Checked those two websites. For same components the prices are the same or just slightly higher.

Hello guys, newbie here.
I need to replace chain, cassette and chainrings for a Reign 2016. I'm not sure what components are compatible. Could you help me? Cassette is 11-36 and chainrings are two, 36-22. Cranks (which I don't need to replace) are FCM677. There is a sticker on the chainring saying "HG X chain only".

I agree with everyone else about you absolutely going 1X. I also have a Reign 2016, that's one of the best improvements you can do to the bike. Shimano sells a 11-42 SLX cassette that will fit straight on, and then just get whichever 30 or 32T chainring you like, just make sure it is 104DCD and narrow-wide (of course...)

You'll love it and will never look back to 2x with a front mech.
