Specialites-TA will sell you a 42t middle ring. It would go well with their 50t outer, in case you wanted to turn a MTB crankset into road gearing. You can have up to a 30t inner from them.Mountain Cycle Shawn said:What is the biggest middle ring you can get? I was thinking about doing the same 2x9 setup.
I like them both actually. I have 36-22 on 2 bikes plus another with Hammerschmidt, and 32-22 set up on another 2 bikes.Mountain Cycle Shawn said:Do you like the 36-22 better then the 32 for trail riding?
I think that's too wide of the double range. I've tried 39-24 before and it was not as good as it should be it's difficult going from small to big. The magic range is 10-14. you'd get good shifting back and forth. Shimano is doing 12 and 14 and Sram is doing 13 I think.Mountain Cycle Shawn said:I was thinking 38/22 in front with 11-34 in the back? I am actually pretty happy with my 32, 11-34, 1x9. But I wouldn't mind a little more climbing power and even though I should just rest and cruize going downhill, I can't help but want to pedal and go down faster.
2x6 38/24 x 11-32. Little road, no dogs.noobie39 said:What would you go with 3x9 2x10?? And why? I a plan to ride trails with my dogs some road riding and some just plain ole fooling around on small downhill.
