Honestly for the CLT area I never feel a need for more than the 32t front and 11-34 cassette I have.  I can see the benefit in areas w/ lots of elevation, but around here soon as I went 1x10 I've never seen a need for anything else.  The only way I'd buy 1x11 (or 1x12 now) was if it came on the bike I purchased.  Nothing wrong with options though.

Well sure you don't need anything more around here, but the mountains are so close I ride there about as much as I ride here. 

On another note if you have a 11s you have more options as far as gearing goes. you can upgrade to a 34 up front, get more gear down low and have the same climbing gear as you have now. It's not all on the climbing side of things but that is how most people look at it.

That's what I am excited about.  Now at a 32 front on my 10 speed I get a little spinny but don't have the legs to step up to a 34.

You never will with that attitude! haha

That is the best (and only) part of 1x11, 12, 13, 14? that is appealing. Not that I'm going after KOMS on gravel roads but it is nice to not spin my brains out riding with those old 2x10 diehards with their 38t/26t chainsets.

I just rode 32x21t throughout dupont with my only trouble going up cedar rock the wrong way. I'm not sure I can imagine a 50t.  That's more than twice as many t's.

If you're sitting in the seat and peddling it's too high a gear, or you're riding a road bike.  Smiley

If you see a guy riding around without a seat like the ultimate weight weenie, it's probably me.

One day I forgot I had taken it off....

I wont make that mistake again.  Undecided
