All New SRAM XX1 Family Sneak Preview

Components

Some interesting news this morning from SRAM, a Sneak Peek at their new 1×11 drivetrain that features their new Type 2 derailleur and will be compatible with either trigger shifters or Grip Shift. No specifics about the actual number of teeth on the cassette, but they call it the “widest range available”. 1×11….less is more?

      I want to like this. But I can’t. I’m at the curmudgeon stage in life as far as gimmick bike ideas have evolved.

      I think by the time the headset standard is settled, the drive train is settled, the perfect wheel diameter is determined, the perfect seat post is made, the final four bar suspension is perfected, I will be riding an electric bike because I’m too old to pedal what I have.

      About time a manufacturer woke up to the trend towards 1x. Front derailleurs are passe. I’ve been riding 1x for several years and love it! One less pound on the bike and for fast XC you don’t need the big and small ring. But then I also adopted the one and only wheel size…650b.

      No need for a 42t cassette! If you cannot push a 32 x 36 up a hill, it might be time for you to consider a new sport that easier for you. Bowling????

      How about quality shifting instead of more gears. For reference the low end 7 speed Hardrocks we sell shift much better than my 10speed Stumpjumper.
