I did run 1x9 for a while on my Blizzard, it made the bike look very nice and simple and there was obviously less to go wrong.

I did a 12 hour race last year and my knee eventually blew up which led me to putting a granny ring back on. For events like that you really need a little gear to get into when your really tired/hurting just to keep going.

I've left the 36t ring as the biggest though so the bike still looks nice :D

But a 36/32 is sooooo easy to pedal right? Thats like 90 revolutions for a metre.
