  • 32t up front might be a cheap option to give you a lower gear to climb with, otherwise, the SLX cranks with a front deraileur & shifter are your best plan


    not sure what you’re asking here, if you need to go double then do it. Put a blackspire stinger or other dual ring chainguide on there to keep the chain tight.


    I used 36/22 on a 2011 Heckler, i know its a different bike but the BB needed a 1mm shim so it did not foul the pivot, now its sorted 36/22 is the shiznit!

    Just put 33t single ring on my five with 11-36 cassette.

    I can climb everything I used to with a 22-36 double. Faster too as I can’t take the lazy option and gently spin anymore.


    i`m with jam bo, 33t single is about spot on with 11-36 cassette
    22t granny??? …no no no!!
    26/36 is a way better option
