I'm waiting on the 32t Works Components 'XX1' inspired chainring for my Haro Mary. Interesting to read your comments re: going to 30t. Hopefully it will work well enough in conjunction with the clutch mech to do away with the need for a guide.
You'll be fine with the 32 I reckon, are you using 36 out back? At the enduro there was one section that was a very long climb that kept getting steeper and steeper, I reckon we'd have been all off walking beforehand anyway, I'm looking at the 30 because where I've been riding recently (as you know) its a big drag up the hill the 30 should make it that wee bit easier. What I will say is that I never found myself cursing the 1X10 set up, as I say when I got off to walk if I'd had a granny it would only have been a few hundred feet further and I'd have been off, with the 1X10 it was nice that it was a simple case of shifting up for easier and down for faster.
Got some nice news in a mail yesterday that the XX1 chainset I ordered should be with me anytime
The site I'd ordered it from changed the status from 6-8 day delivery to possible June, fortunately I got one that had been stocked.
