Hi,
Just bought myself a FEX 2017 and want to convert it to a 1x11. Advice I received from the shop while having it serviced was to just buy a Deore M5100 1x11 groupset which has been harder said than done due to reputable stores being out of stock of one or more components.
Need advice on a suitable complete crank set to match the Deore 11-51 cassette and Deore shadow RD (already purchased) or can I just keep the stock cranks and match it to a Wolftooth 32T chainring?
Back on a bike after 10 years so any advice would be appreciated.

Apologize for this being the third post in a row on the subject but I’m passionate, ok!

Buy a narrow wide chain ring, mount it to the middle ring position of your crankset, measure your chain, keep everything in the back. I’d love a new groupset too, but you can make it work on your own with very little.
