I know sram do the huge cassette range of 11-42 but do any other companies do soething along them lines. Recently bought a 29er with 10x3. Wanted to make it 10x1. Wanted something slightly larger than the 36 on the rear. Ideally a 38. Any suggestions. I've got an XT cassette so pretty sure the top 3 sprockets are all joined do any companies make a set up so i could just replace the top 3 of the cassette?

    There are options, such as the general Lee or a single large ring and then you remove two from the middle of the cassette and replace with one gear, personaly I'd just fit a slightly smaller chainring for a 29er, say a 30t instead of a 32t for similar effect but cheaper.

    More gear than you require but maybe they do a smaller one?
  • That's the sort of thing that i was looking for. Hopefully the do a slightly smaller one.

    A 38 wouldn't really be worthwhile, only half a gear bigger than the 36.

    KCNC do an 11-38, but they're expensive and censored .

    That half a gear might just make the difference though. Just seen the price of them at £379 i would rather try a little harder in bigger gear. Good for a weight weenie though!!
