loving the single ring set-up. how are you finding the ratio's in real world use? do you use every gear?

Like it. Definately rate the 1x9 setup
I've never had am 11-34 cassette, so I'll let you know how I like it. I've used 1x8 setups in the past many times, and the whole 1x* idea gets my full support. I always dump the big ring off a tripple crank in favor of a bash guard. Always. Big rings make little sense where I live, unless you have to ride on the road to get to the trailhead. The granny usually only gets use when I travel to the mountains, but I'm thinking the 34 in the back coupled with my 32 front ring will be granny enough for me. I'll be in the mountains this weekend so I'll let you know.
The blue EWR was originally a 1x8 when I first built it up.
Thanks for the good word everyone. I'll put up some dirt pictures next week!
