Ive been running XT M8000 cassette (11-42) with a OneUp 47T extenter (and a 30t XT chainring). Its working very well and lasting well. I’ve also found that Shimano XTR chains work best they last better than XT (and lower) chains and shifting and noise is quieter even when muddy.
Dont know if that helps
I had a suspension post on my flat bar bike and on a long ride always got cramped/sore thigh muscles – for some reason I thought of changing to a normal seat post just to see if it helped and never suffered again. I dont know why other than the constant rise and fall of the seat height.
Anyway just thought I would pass that on
