    Where are the SRAM 2x10 Cranks Lower Than 26/39?

    I'm putting an EMD 9 together, and have decided on SRAM X5 2x10 components for the build. Their website says that 24/38 and 22/36 are available, but I can't find any online retailer stocking them. Are they not out yet, or is older tech (I'm relatively new to this so I might be behind the curve a little)!

    Your comments would be appreciated.

    I wonder if those are built on the standard 64/104 BCD cranks, whereas the 26/39 are on the 80/120 BCD?

    I had the exact same issue. I ended up buying an x9 2x10 setup with 22/36 rings. I forgot where I found it, but they are available. The bolt pattern was 104/64. It made a huge difference.

    I'm still putting the build together, but I would think it should do better than a 28/42 with anything that I throw at it. I'll be running a 11-36 cassette 2X10 setup, and with my 29er rims and 175mm cranks, I don't foresee any problems. Also my build is an EMD, so big chainring clearance was always gonna be an issue.

    Perhaps others with climbing skills can comment on on a 24/38 ring.
