The 1×10 speed dilemma

Got the 1x10s working with a type 2 rear derailleur on my fully and it works great – the gear range is working fine for 98-99% of the terrain that I ride here in Sweden/Denmark (only a few places where I could use a lower gear but the hills are not that long so it’s possible to get up) and the next obvious move would to install the same gearing on my hardtail because I like the simplicity of the 1x10s setup.

But – I have just been to germany and riding some really long/steep hills where I was very happy for my 26t chainring in front. So the dilemma – keeping the 2x10s on my hardtail for maybe 3-4 trips a year or going 1x10s which will be fine most for the year and then maybe building another bike with lighter gears :-DImage

  1. By teh way! Har du nogen erfaring med Fun Works hjul? Du bruger sikkert ikke sådan nogen underlødige komponenter… men måske du kender en der gør? ;)

    • Hej Morten

      Lyder skønt med ny mtb – 29er? har du fået rammen og hvad endte du med at betale udover selve prisen? Overvejer nemlig at hente et par fælge hjem.

      Fun Works har jeg ikke direkte erfaring med men kører selv med nogle Novatec (tror det er nogenlunde samme kvalitet) og de kører fint.
