- Anyone running SRAM XX1 yet?
The point is it allows more people to comfortably use a 1x system as it gives a spread not a million miles away from a 2×10 setup.
Those currently running a 1×10 setup and enjoying the benefits can have the same but with a much wider spread of gears with no bigger jumps than current equipment allows.
Whats more the point in the long run is that if the front mech is taken out of the frame design equation it opens up many avenues.
Take your example 32-22 with 11-34
(These are calcuatled for 26×2.25)
Lowest gear inches = 17.2
Highest gear inches = 77.1
Most common 2×10 setup – 26/39 with 11-36
Lowest gear inches = 19.1
Highest gear inches = 94.1
Now for 1×11 with a 32/30/28 ring.
Lowest gear inches = 20.2/18.8/17.8
Highest gear inches = 84.8/79.5/74.2
And for a common 1×10 setup with 32/34 on an 11-36
Lowest gear inches 23.6/24.9
Highest gear inches 77.1/81.9
I currently run 1×10 34 11-36 on my mtbs – i get a lower low gear and a higher high gear with no bigger jumps running a 32t ring on the xx1.. whats not to like!Posted 5 years ago
njee the cassette is very impressive – dont get me wrong its BIG but its not really that much bigger than a 11-36
Going on my TRc for now – its all built apart from the chain which ive only just realised hasnt arrived! Freehub/cassette lockring system is nice and neat too.Posted 5 years ago
Ready to roll, will report back after the weekend.
Got to say aswell, had my frame done over by invisiframe before i rebuilt with the xx1 and feel its worthy of a mention. Bloody fantastic job and very pleased with the finish. The gloss stuff (on matt finish) i had previous looked really patchy.

Oops forgot about this ive been a rather busy bee!
Will drop some proper feedback down when ive got a little more time but first impressions are good.
Dirtyrider – running a Ceramic GXP with no problems?
Frogstomp – the matching left grips comes with the xx1 gripshift (no fisher spare part code for this on its own as yet)Posted 5 years agobebSubscriber
The only addition XX1 has over any other clutch mech is that it has a different profile to the teeth on the chainring…….do people really think thats enough to keep you chain on compared to a bog standard chainring?
Err not sure that’s totally true, xx1 rear mech has the horizontal parallelogram, which removes the second source of chain slap over bumps. Clutch mechs remove the main source but not all, if I’m to understand the SRAM press release stuff.Posted 5 years ago
first ride on mine as well,
its nothing ground breaking, just nice to have such a big range without having a front shifter, simple,
no chainguide on mine, chain stayed where it should
deathly silent as well, like riding a singlespeed, all i could hear was the quiet whurh of the freehub (240s) –Posted 5 years ago
