Would love to hear the feedback on the climbing ability with the 42t and your chainring up front compared to 3x10 or 2x10 when you try it out!
there are a couple different options for the 42 tooth cog. Oneup, Wolftooth, and e-thirteen. The onep is $100, but comes with a 16 tooth cog for easier shifting. The wolf tooth is $89, and the e-thirteen is $69. The only reason I went with one up was the extra cog,
. Have not had a lot of trails where I need to use the big cog, but you can tell the difference in power when you spin, but, alas, you can tell the loss of speed. Not that I am worried about speed, lol. That was only after one ride,however. Would recommend a 1x10 with this setup, it only cost me $125, that was the cassette, and a new chain.
