    11- 40

    If the climbing is tough, I will swap it out for a 42 and put a 30 tooth in front. The Wolf's Tooth stuff is fairly inexpensive. I am sure I can find a Race Face as well somewhere. The...

    I'm in agreement with the current thinking; Sugarloaf will see an increase for sure but budget-minded families will take their business to either Black or Shawnee.

    I'm hoping to go in the next two weeks. Honestly, the only real "climb" is the darling hill road slug to the trailhead and then the trail "coronary". Aside from that, I don't remember using my granny...

    Sweet write up.

    I'd love to check it out with the lifts spinning. They say you can ride up or shuttle but during the week, everything is shut down except Roly Grail and Knightslayer.

    Did a little "Frankenstein-ing" and made a cheaper version of the 1 x 11 with the help of the shop.

    Kept the xt arms and mounted to a narrow-wide wolf tooth 32.

    So far, I dig it. A lot. I'm...

    1 x 11?

    Short story long, the lbs is offering a conversion from my 2 x 10 XT setup to a 1 x 11 XTR (new shifter, dérailleur, chain, front ring) for $450

    The gearing is 32 up front, 42 rear.

    Thoughts?...

    If they do push you into a 650, I have a set of WTB i23's laced to Dt Swiss 350's that I might be able to part with. (If my new wheels ever show)

    It does sound like Spesh should take care of you...

    Hunts or Heinz

    Simple question.

    This conversation sparked an epic battle between the wife and I.

    She says I can't tell the difference. I say Heinz is the only ketchup. I say she's wrong.
