Anyone have any strong feelings for or against either one?? Been considering toying with a double chainring instead of a triple....looking for people's opinions.

I am going with a 24/36 double this year as well on my Van Dessel FS 29er. Granny gear was always too low on my 29er so I think this will strike a good balance. I plan to tweak my rear climbing gear on the cassette but otherwise, plan to use this setup for the Breck 100. So yeah, I am pretty confident about a 2 ring crank. ;)

Course dependent. Add some steep hills and possibly altitude and a granny becomes choice.
I thought you could pretty much match the ratio using a double to any that you might feel you need with a triple granny.

Admittedly, I haven't really sat down to look at what is available yet.
