How to mount Absolute Black Oval narrow-wide chainring:

Important - if you are converting from a 2X chainring setup to 1X and wish to mount a 30T absoluteBLACK ring you need to purchase 1X bolts from Shimano for this crank because 2X bolts are too short. Other chainring sizes can use Shimano 2X bolts.
