    10spd cassette with cog larger than 36?

    Will any manufacturer come out with a 10 speed cassette with a cog larger than a 36? I would like to go 1x10, but I know some of the stuff I ride would need bigger than a 30 or 32 front with a 36 rear for my ability. Is the only option to go 11 speed (which for me is not really an option I want to take)?

    Doubtful - the bigs don't want to discourage anyone from 'upgrading' to 1x11 systems. Look at 9sp cassettes - there were (are) very few 36t 9 sp cassettes available once 36t '29er' 10 sp cassettes hit the scene.

    Check out the Leonardi Racing General Lee. It's mentioned above, but it's important to note, they have a generation 2 going on now that provides a 10-42 range (same as 1x11) just with slightly larger steps since it's still a 10 speed. Currently they don't have a US distributor, but they are willing to work with shops and people in the US to make sales here.

    I also saw a 41 tooth thanks to the links you guys posted. This may be worth a try.

    He makes great stuff, I have a few of his products, but those are REALLY heavy (stainless steel).

    Is it heavier after you consider the front shifter, front derailleur, and on of the front rings will now be gone?

    I just bought one of those 41 tooth rings but have yet to install . Combining it w/ my 12/36 9 speed boat anchor. I 'm not concerned about the extra few ounces

    I'd like to hear your thoughts post installation if possible. I don't really know that I need more gearing with a 30t up front and 12-36t in the rear... but there are always those days when I am feeling off...

    Unless you have a steel freehub body I'd be very wary about using one of those. The larger a rear cog is, the more torque it applies. An aluminum freehub will likely be chewed up by a single large cog like that. That is the reason most better quality cassettes have the larger cogs on a single carrier.
    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    Honestly, with that costing $100, and the General Lee costing $140, that causing you to drop the 17 tooth, and the GL just replacing the top couple, I'd buy the GL over that in a heart beat.

    After looking at some of these prices I will stick with my 2x10 setup, I can see only having to shift on set of gears being nice but the price point to do this is a tad over the top. 100 for one cog hell I only pay 50 on CRC for a 11/36 XT cassette. I have managed with 2 derailleurs for the last 35 years I am pretty sure I can manage for the next 30.

    Not ebay. For the record, ebay and I don't do any business any more. At all. Ever.

    Careful with the GL and these other bolt on solutions. I Spent $150 on a GL and about 5 hours of my time trying to get the GL to shift smoothly and finally gave up.

    I will just stick with 11-36 and run 32t on my 26" bike and 30t on 29" bike up front until maybe some day the mfgs come out with a wide range 10 speed cass. I would be happy with a 11-40.

    11-40 10 speed, works out to $115, which is pretty cheap.

    That's not a bad solution to the problem, if you have cranks you can get a 30 tooth ring for. My cranks are 120 BDC, and 36 is the smallest I can find. That said, in my area, I haven't found anything I can't ride with 1:1 that would be able to ride with lower gearing. I just have issues following people that use lower gearing. Reminds me a little of riding my single speed with groups.
