So the Nomad is currently set up as 1 x 10 with 34t and a 11-36 Sram XG1080 cassette and quite frankly im not fit enough for a 1 x 10 set up and I'm loathed to put a front mech on it. In fact anything steeper than a flat fire road would probably kill me right now.
As either way I'm going to have to change the chain ring for something smaller so I can attempt climbing (urg) I was wondering as I have an X0 clutch mech and have absolutely mullered the plastics on the chain device, and thus need replacing, whether I should try this thick thin gubbins and ditch the chain device completely.
Must have been under a rock when all the posts about this new fangled wizardry occurred. Can I just change the chain ring and chain and keep the same cassette?
Also can I shove one of these dinner plate sized sprockets on the back of the cassette and effectively have a granny gear?
Apologies I did search but there is so many vaguely not quite answering the question posts I gave up and was lazy. Please don't wee in my bombers.
