1x 11 setup, what are your thoughts?
Been looking at some new bikes this weekend and thinking of selling mine before it gets too old and out of date. I'm not sure if i'm convinced about the single ring set up on new bikes. I currently have a 2012 Trek remedy with triple chain rings and 9speed with 26" wheels. I use all three rings mainly becuse i hate climbing so use the granny a lot and when it gets flat or slight down hill i get into the big ring and ride flat out. so my main questions for you in the real world is 1, does a small single chain ring restrict your top end speed? 2, how does mud affect a 11 speed cassette shifting?
