I'm running an X9 mech and shifter, Sram PC 1051 chain, SLX 11-36 cassette with a 34 tooth Hope chainring. I have been using a Blackspire C4 chain device but have just bought an E13 LG1 Trail device which will be fitted for the weekend.

No issues so fat and I can just about climb up most things. There are times when I miss having a granny ring like on long climbs so sometimes end up pushing. I'm not too fussed though as I hate climbing!

so you have converted a standard chainset to single ring ? are chain devices really needed ?

Just running a normal Race Face Atlas crankset with the Hope ring which works with 10 speed set ups. Some people say you don't need a chain device, I'm not so sure. The new clutch mechs may mean you can get away without one. If you don't want to run a full on dh style device, you could just run a top mounted one that replaces the front lech.
