- Transmission Help – 2×9 / 2×10 / Head hurting
I need to change my rear mech, at the same time I really want to change from 3×9 to something less hassle, I have no idea what to do. I don’t want to spend too much but I appreciate going 2×9 or 2×10 means changing chain set etc.
Any suggestions on what I should do? I ride singletrack / trail centre / hope to try Enduro stuff at some stage.
Oh and it’s a hard tail…..help 😕Posted 5 years agoscandal42 wrote:
Seems the cheapest option I suppose. Can you change the cassette rather than the middle ring to give you a bit more higher gearing?
Wonder if I could fit a shimano clutch mech to this sram arrangement, interesting.
No to the cassette but ride it and see, if it’s a standard 32 fir me it’s just too spinny but many here disagree
There is a bodge 10sp with 9sp thing going on.Posted 5 years ago
Bash guards seem steep for what they are.
This looks like a great deal with the bb included?
Any opinionsPosted 5 years agofathomerSubscriber
You don’t need a bash, I ran 2×9 for over a year without one. All I did was whip the big ring off and wound the stop screw on the front mech in so I couldn’t accidentally shift to the big ring that wasn’t there. Setting the mech was a bit of a pita, though got there in the end.Posted 5 years agomactheknifeSubscriber
I took the big ring off, fitted a bash and changed the middle ring from a 32t to a 36t.
I only did this because i ride a lot in the cairngorms and it can be very bouldery and i was trashing the big ring regularly.
This set up works well for me.
Oh and if you are 9 speed then a clutch mech is out. 10 speed only as far as i am aware.Posted 5 years ago
