Ive been watching the 1x10 revolution/evolution on here for sometime and Im a little mystified really.
"The Man" introduces a slightly different wheel size and its all pitchforks and bitching, but people seem to be sucking up the drivetrain shi(f)t like its a) an improvement and b) its necessary
Seems like you can lose a shifter, cable, mech, a granny ring and potentially a bash ring.
For that all you need to do is, buy a new thick thin chainring, change the chain and cassette at the same time as they were slightly worn, then replace your rear mech with a clutch type, then swap some of the sprokets on the perfectly good cassette so you can put a huge low gear in. After that all you might need is a chain device and it will all work.
so is it all fasion? Or have i missed something.
