So Dougcan uses the upper half of his cassette most. But than, as he shifts so often, isn't that due to the small spacing, that he can always pedal efficient in a (to him) nice frequency? To me Eagle was the greatest thing. I'm mostly on the 10,12 and 14 teeth rings to commute to the trail, on the steepest parts of the access gravel roads I am using even the 50tooth pie platter quite a lot. (Using a 30t front ring) All the in between rings are in use, too. I don't know if my lazy ass and weak limbs are the limitation here though. But I do understand. I guess one could live with less rings, especially when we would be able to build stronger wheels. And when we do that we can talk about wider bottom brackets, too (like in the chromag article), and build way stronger rear triangles, wheels, chains into our bikes. (sorry for the bad english, it's not my mother tongue)
