My current 9speed drive chain is beginning to look worn out and will need replacing soon. So do I replace with another 9sp or go for 10sp? I realize 10sp is where things are heading but I am not convinced 10sp is of a particular benefit to me as I run a 2 x 9 set up and use the granny ring a bit for those super steep climbs.
I cannot see that 1 x 10 set up will give the the lowest gears I need (currently run 22-32 and 11-32 cassette). However I may be wrong! Has anyone switched and found that the 1 x 10 (say 32 + 11-36) enough to get them up those steep climbs?
WOuld I be better off saving my pennies and going for the new 11 sp stuff when it eventually becomes affordable. With that I can see that a 1 x 11 set up could work for me!
Any one faced the same problems and found a good answer?
