I would like to use Shimano road shifters (105s) on my rim brake bike. Also want to set it up as a 1x system with (optimally) a 30t chainring and an 11 speed 10-42 cassette. The second best setup for me would be to run a double with 30/46 chainrings and an 11 speed 11-42 cassette. Looks like, if I want to stay with Shimano road shifters, I'm SOL. So far the only solution I've found is if I use the Absolute Black oval 30/46 double. It would work but not so interested in the oval rings (and not jazzed by the looks of the chainring). Anyway, any ideas, suggestions?
