    No some people don’t like spinning at 100rpm off road.
    Running 28/39 Sram setup 2×10 and having come from 22-36 feels good having dropped nearly 2kg from the bike and left single pivot for something proper.
    Span out the 36 at times if I was on straight trails, the 39 is holding up very well even on the balls out bits at Roto last weekend.

    You need a Capreo hub ,it has a 9 tooth sprocket ,with a 36 tooth ring gives the same top gear as 44/11

    DrP Nope not got one and can’t fine then on the web, only 38T for single set up.

    Ok so set up is Cannondale prophet with Double (22T & 36T) and bash, 11T to 34T on back.
    I keep on spinning out it top gear offroad (When it’s dry).

    So as far as I can see it I have 3 options:

    1. Dump the double and get a triple but I don’t think I need 44T and 36T is fine then the trails are not bone dry.

    2. Get at 38T for my double, but not sure if it would shifted from 22T or if you can even get them.

    3. Put up with it, it will rain soon.
