    Nope, I recently went from a standard 3 x 9 to a 2 x 10 and apart from missing some speed going down hills from not having the same big ring I’ve not noticed a problem going up hill.

    If anything my stubbornness in not using the granny ring for most hills is improving my fitness!

    There is almost no difference between those gears.

    I’m rapidly running out of reasons not to pick it up on my way home!

    Looking at a 2 x 10 XT groupset through Merlin.

    Smallest gear is 26*36 whereas I’m used to a standard 22*32.

    I really like my knees and granny gear……will I notice much difference?

    Shimano over SRAM everytime
