Have been running 3 x 9 for the last three years or so and have decided to go 2x10 as and when I get bits. Managed to get a 2 speed XX shifter cheap this week so need to get the thing finished.

I usually use RaceFace chainrings as they shift well if a little aggressively every now and again with a Middleburn grannie that I rarely use. Idea is that I go 38 26 and put a bashguard on in place of the third cog. So what chainrings shift as well as RaceFace? I am running Atlas cranks.

Also cassettes, was thinking an XT 11-36. Anyone running one of these and how is it bearing up? Will be running a KMC chain.

TA rings have served me well on a 2x9 lash up. If you can get the right size and bolt pattern to match your chain set.

I use Middleburn duo chainrings. They shift beautifully.

If you don't mind 25% Danish VAT and extortionate postage, I can sell you some...

(Thought not) :facepalm:
