1x common on new 2018 bikes, why?
Had a look around online and at the new Voodoo range. They have gone with 1x 10 for the Hoodoo and 1 x 11 for the Bizango. I dont get the benifit of the reduced gearing especially for more budget spec bikes. Are the manufacturers just following the latest fashion at the cost of less ideal gear ranges and more tired legs?!
Caveat - I buy and ride cheap, however, I reserve the right to advise on expensive kit that I have never actually used and possibly never will
