Seems like the bike manufacturers are treating 1x as an upgrade to 2x. So for example as you go from a Trek Remedy 7 to 8, you go from 2x to 1x. Same with the Remedy 7 to 8.
They want me to pay more, for less, and I don't think I like it!
I have not ridden 1x, but it seems to be that 2x offers the great advantage of dumping to granny real quick, or hopping to overdrive real quick, without going through a whole bunch of cogs on the back. Am I silly to think this?
Who has gone from 2x (or 3x) to 1x and basically "not noticed much" or "gotten used to it easily enough". That's what I want to know as I select a new bike. And I don't want to lose my lowest of the low gear, either.
