No matter what the calendar says it’s winter here.
We got hit with about a foot of snow that made holiday travel really messy. I’m not racing this weekend, but Carrie is so after we both trashed our bikes (but had a fun ride) I had to try to rehab her rig back into working order.
The 1x setup is awesome for racing, and with this range works surprisingly well for dirt riding as well. The current 42t with an 11-32 is a similar low end to the 34t x 26 that I run on the road bike. And it worked well even with the massive slush build up you see here.
Look for the upcoming review on my 1 x 10 setup.
