Thanks Vik, one - potentially interesting - aside to consider:
I know a lot of folks, myself included, who tried 1x years ago and found it
okay for some rides (climbing the Fromme fire road as a local example) but an
exercise in suffering in general on steep or technical uphill trails. This
would be in the days of 11-32 cassettes (so 32×11-32) and 30-35lb bikes. The
vast majority of us switched back to, at least manual bailout grannies.
Without knowing where you ride (terrain/elevation) do you think you may see
less chainring wear because you are not in the worst cross-chain situations as
often as what I'd see in the Shore-to-Sky area?
Just thinking if you know a lot of guys who've been riding 1x since before 42t
cogs came along you may be pedalling gears with much straighter chain lines
more of the time?
