A 32-36 is a tiny gear and sitting down pushing through stuff in that gear won't be quicker than walking. 22-32 is just silly and if you really feel you need that gear then watch your mates walking away ahead of you and think again.
Where do you ride to come to that conclusion? Assuming you are not just winding us up! Are you doing 6 hour Scottish mountain epics with thousands and thousands of feet of technical ascent?
In my experience when you keep grinding up a massive climb, the people that are off and pushing are not pushing faster than the riders. On top of that, as stated here the whole point is to ride everything and for a lot of people having a granny ring or 42 tooth cassette enables them to achieve that.
I've not felt the need for any more gears since using 1x10, and simply think it's crazy to go looking for 42T cogs and the like
So why do the 2 best and fittest all round MTBers of our time Jared Graves and Jerome Clementz run 42 tooth rear cogs then? Have you seen these guys climb? They are on a different planet, are you telling us you are fitter than them?
You say above you are doing proper Scottish mountain rides? Well if you can clean the climbs up here on 1X10 without a 42t cog you are insanely fit, especially when that last 3000' climb comes 6 hours into the day. Even if you can, why come on here and try to make people that can't feel inferior to you?
