- Todays Poll “How will you convert to 12 speed?”
I’d expect for me it will be the “when the next bike i come with has it fitted” … I don’t see any need or have any desire to go anything up from my 10 speed bikes, but i will have a new bike in the coming years and it’s very unlikely to have a 10 speed option, so i’ll get what i’m given. It’s likely to be a while though, if i change anything in the forseeable future it’s more than likely swapping the Parkwood frame for a Stanton Sherpa.Posted 1 year agotallmart10Subscriber
I don’t know if it was just me, but setting up 1×11 speed was not the simple process it had been for 10-speed cassettes and below. It turned out to be very sensitive to the rear derailleur hanger alignment (which was slightly bent in my case but not really visible to the naked eye).
Got it going in the end and have been pretty pleased with it, but if
<finickityness> is proportional to <number of cassette cogs>
then I think the sweet spot is somewhere around 10.5.
I don’t think I will be upgrading to 12-speed any time soon, until, as other posters have said, it is the only available option.Posted 1 year agodaernMember
My wheels have Chris king hubs so just changing the freehub is £250 before you start with a cassette etc.
Gasp, OK that’s pretty crazy money. Makes Hope’s look cheap at £60-odd…
Personally, I’d look at a 1×12 setup when by 2×11 comes up for replacement as it wears out, but not before. Would probably favour XTR as I’m generally more of a Shimano fanboy, but would depend on what freehub drivers are available at the point of upgrade to save dumping a set of serviceable Hope hubs.Posted 1 year ago
