:D


I've got an even more radical system - you have one cog on the back, and one ring on the front, and you just harden up and get some strength instead of wussing about with ridiculous sized cogs :satan:
It'll never catch on...

I'm running Wolftooth 42/16t on a Xt cassette with XO medium cage Mech. Works really bloody good. The shift from 36-42 is actually crisper than the rest of the cassette..!

I really like the idea, but 1623g is a hefty crankset.
Plus expensive (even without the BB & shifter)

I got the extra crazy one with 3 (count em, 3) rings up front.

Going up = 22-36.
Going fast = 44-11.

Got one on my bigger bike. It's not to protect the chainring from the ground. It's to protect my legs from the chainring.

What the goddamn hell's up with online spoke calculators? I'm building my second set of wheels and I'm having as many problems with these ones as the last ones...

I don't realise the spokes are wrong size til I get to the last 'outies' then I have to pull them apart again...

I'm following the how to measure centre to hub flange and rim erd and stuff....

Can anyone help a brother out? OR JUST TROLL AWAY...
