Not sure if here or "any question answered" is the better place to ask and if has certainly be adressed before but just to confirm.
Currently on 2x10 with:
rear derailleur Shimano 105 RD-5701-SS
front derailleur Shimano Tiagra 4700 2x10V
crankset double Stronglight Impact Compact 34/50
I am considering a cheap (and reversible) conversion to 1x10, I was considering finding a bash guard to replace outer chainring and keep inner chainring, and remove front derailleur/adjust chain length.
Will it work or do I need to find something to "retain"the chain on the inner side? EDIT: something like this https://www.lecyclo.com/velo/pieces-detachees/transmission/chaine/collier-anti-deraillement-sur-cadre-de-velo.html
It is only for road use, no rough terrain
