this is something i am struggling with aswel.
i usually run 22/32/44 with 11-32 on my main xc bike and 11-34 on my st4 (purely coz it's a full suss and sometimes doesn't climb aswel)
that said, my new bike will mainly be for local rides in the flat so while you are thinking more of climbing gears i am thinking of fast trail gears so thinking of losing the granny ring but then i look at the options and what i would like doesn't seem to be available in the brands i want.
was thinking middleburn duo but the sizes are the smaller ones, 29t etc. so i think i'll have to go for the standard cranks with no inner ring but as a get out clause i was thinking the new 11-36 10 speed cassette as this would give me my normal 9 speed cassette range plus the 36 sprocket just incase i need somethi g to replace the granny ring.
it's a tough choice though really, i know i get on with what i am using but i think it's time to try something a little different.
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
