Looking at the pictures now I'm not sure that the ridges to interface the freehub run all the way along the spider, so now I'm nervous the same thing will happen again. It should be delivered today, so I'll look at it then.

    I think maybe I need to work on not being such a pedal masher, it's rough on equipment...
    Did you get a 11/34?

    Lol, it's an advantage. Lets me get a couple years out of the front granny gear since I don't drop into it much!

    22/32 up front?

    I've never worn out a granny up front. Probably sticking with 22/32 up front, but I was considering trying 24/34. Also still considering going 1x9. Haven't decided yet. Need to decide soon, and order some parts...

    I'm probably going to stick with the 11/34 rear and 22 /32 up front. Seems to work pretty good for me and feel like I do a pretty fair job on the hills with it so why change it. I'm not sold on the 1 x 9 thing yet even though I really try not to drop it into granny, but it is nice to know that it is there! If anything I'd try a 24/32 up front if it would work.

    I'm not totally sold on 1x9 either, its more an effort to reduce complexity and be able to run a stronger ring up front. I'll probably stick with what I'm running now though.

    Like my 2x10 setup but down sizing the front rings from 39/26 to 38/24. Staying the same in back 12/36.
