Lusting after SRAM’s Eagle 10-50 12-speed cassette but stuck on 11 speed? Wolf Tooth’s new GCX46 gets you very close by replacing the stock 42T cog on your 1×11 with a 46T. This modification gives you an easier bailout gear, while still retaining the tighter gear spacing of 11 speed. Price is $90.
64 BCD Universal
Wolf Tooth has also updated their 64 BCD chainrings to work with Shimano 11-speed cranks. This allows those with Shimano 11-speed cranks to install smaller chainrings. Previously, they were limited to a 30T, but the Wolf Tooth ring is available in 26T and 28T flavors. Price is $64.
76 BCD Chainrings
The 76 BCD chainring works with, you guessed it, any 76 BCD spider. If you’re running a SRAM XX1 crankset, Specialized Stout, or some Cannondale Cranks, this could be a much cheaper alternative than an OEM replacement. The chainrings are available in 30T and 32T and are compatible with 9-12 speed drivetrains. Retail is $60.
The GnarWolf is a top mounted chainguide with a neat trick. Unlike most designs that rely on spacers or shims, Wolf Tooth uses an elliptical expanding mandrel to allow for infinite horizontal and vertical adjustment. You can adjust side-to-side position for chain line between 45mm and 51mm. The vertical adjustment works with a 34T to 52T round or oval narrow/wide chainring. When you need to work on your drivetrain, the entire set-up flips up and out of the way. Previously, this design was only available with an ISCG05 mount. Now, you can pick one up for braze on, high direct, and seat tube mounts. Retail for the chainguide is $70.
Did we mention all these components are manufactured in the United States? Now that is making America great again.
