Your not gaining any more range, just getting closer gears surely.Posted 8 years ago
You do get an extra ratio on the cassette, there’s going to be an 11-36 option, so it’s not just closer ratios. The chainset looks super cheap and nasty though!
Reckon I may get some of the brakes, and possibly a rear mech, but I can’t see me getting the rest of it!Posted 8 years agoOffroadingMember
Those are oldish pics, IIRC that front mech is the first prototype one with a odd clamp idea.
The Santa Cruz guys are running XO rear mechs with altered cable pull thanks to a new cable loop. They are also using modified XO triggers to give 10 clicks and just use a standard Sram Road cassette.Posted 8 years agoDougalSubscriber
Not sure how well a 10spd chain would last???? I think 9spd will be around for a few more years yet
The same shite was spouted when 9speed first appeared. A 10spd chain is only 0,5mm narrower than a 9spd one, and people don’t seem to have problems running whole ‘cross seasons on them.Posted 8 years ago

nevertheless, narrowing the chain must mean concentrating the load onto a narrower bearing surface, which I guess would lead to faster wear rates – and to what benefit ? I often find myself shifting several cogs on 9 speed to get the gear I want in general, non competitive riding, and just don’t need closer ratios.Posted 8 years ago
