xt 11-42 cassette for free…
iffoverload – pm’ed you on pinkbike i’ll take one 😀Posted 6 years ago
Iffoverload I’d be interested in an Alloy spider if you are ordering some more in the future.
I’ll PM you on PB if that’s OK
I fancy bodging myself a wider range 1×9 setup and that looks just the ticket.Posted 6 years ago
make sure you have a steel freewheel if mounting it to plain sprocket not one on a spider.
It can’t be beyond the realms of possibility to mount the chainring to the 36t of a complete cassette with a spacer on the bolts and one behind the cassette to pad out the freehub and spread the load across the whole cassette.Posted 6 years ago
Hi Pete I’ve pm’d you over on PB.Posted 6 years ago
Ha, nice to see someone do this properly rather than my proper bodge!
I didn’t use mine for long as I reckoned it’d trash the freehub, i figured id just order a one-up sprocket instead.
Whilst waiting for the new sprocket I switched to a 30t chainring instead of the 34t I was on before and that seems to be fine now – I never want for a higher gear and the climbs are fine (I live at the foot of snowdon so most rides included a fairly decent climb). I’m not sure I’ll bother using the 42t sprocket when it finally arrives.Posted 6 years ago
@ torquil Thanks for sharing 🙂
I dont often spin out but want to keep at least a 32 up front.Posted 6 years ago
got some more made up at last,
they are either steel or aluminium £20 each including the postage and a couple of spacers or 1 of each for £30Posted 6 years ago
any questions please send me a message on PB
I’ll keep my eye on this thread, I’m about to go 1×10 so I’ll see how I get on with a 36 before I start messing about.Posted 6 years ago
@iffoverload – does the Alu version have a wider footprint on the freehub body? Got 240 hubs and don’t fancy destroying the f/hub….Posted 6 years ago
This would be good on a sportive bike for after cake – anyone tried something like this on a 2×10 105 setup ?Posted 6 years ago
@sillyoldman , no its cut out of 2mm sheet not CNC. I have only used it on a steel freehub body so dont know how a Alu one would hold up.
Someone did suggest fixing the adaptor on the back of a cassette with a carrier.
where theres a will.. 😆Posted 6 years ago
Any pics of it on the bike?Posted 6 years ago
more in the album and a vid too.Posted 6 years ago
Interesting idea. I’ve installed a thick/thin chainring, but kept the small ring in place, so if i need to do a lot of climbing, I can just drop the chain by hand.Posted 6 years ago
