He’ll run outta top end only being able to have a 30t on the front......... I can see it needing to be swapped out sooner or later :rolleyes:

Yeah, doesn't. It'll be fine.
Good news, your name better not show up in fuck wits.
Im thinking of reusing my a XTR cranks in a similar fashion. Did the BB need any spacers? Could you potentially throw in on the drive side just to give it some space?

I'm also trying to look into other chainrings for the 96bcd that could space the line out a little further as well.

No, it's a 73mm BB, no spacers.

This Shimano chainring is thicker than most. Possibly some other brands would have more clearance.

Do you know what the individual chain lines are for the 2x chainrings? Could you potentially run a 34t from a 2x to get it out further?

XT M8000 (cheers @Zaf ) 34t rings are the same offset and mount to the same holes, the 2x have a smaller 22t-ish inner ring that mount on a smaller BCD inner mountings... From my own stash, 30t, 32t, 34t and a Wolftooth 36t are all the same mounting and spacing, and I'd hazard a guess 28t are the same too.
