    rawr that's one sexy bike you must love looking at it as you push it uphill.

    Some folks actually enjoy the climbing part and 22x34 lets them do that.

    Naw I actually found myself climbing more in my 36t when I was running a 24x36 and I felt like a pansie spinning like crazy.

    I have no trouble climbing on mine (and we do some fairly serious climbs) - 32 front and 11-34 rear. Actually has made me a much stronger rider over the last year, plus I found I was hardly ever using the small ring, anyway. Works for me anyway - individual results may vary.

    you should ...its outstanding. I also am biased towards Chromag as they are such great guys I can tell just based on a few short e-discussions I have had with them.

    What's up with all the taco bashgaurds on AM bikes? Replacing a crank arm is a lot cheaper than a new frame when you bust your ISCG mounts/ strip them.

    Setup: Modded e*thirteen 32t special (now STP), XTR crankset, MRP carbon bash, e*thirteen chainring.

    Rest: 2010 Reign X frame
    2010 36 Float RC2 fork
    DHX 5 shock
    G Dropper
    SLR flow carbon saddle
    Crossmax wheels
    XT cass, X9 SL chain
    Conti RQ 2.2 black chilli tires
    Saint brakes
    Straitline pedals (not for long!)
    XTR shifter & derailleur
    Point1 LTD stem
    Raceface SIXC AM bars

    Right now I have an 11-32 cassette but can't quite get myself up some climbs, but I plan on either going 11-34 9sp or if the time for a change is the same time as Shimano's 10sp release then it'll be 11-36 XTR!

    Good thing I push up steep climbs, eh? 29.32 lbs as pictured. lighter with my current mud spikes.

    ISCG strength shouldn't be an issue on most current bikes. The bash guards are great and the chain guides are nice too for more agressive stuff. I like the MRP XC Bash.

    Edit- My 1x9!

    Yeah but why something like the LG1+ over the SRS+? For the riding I'd do, I'd much rather prefer the crank mounted bashguard over the taco. For downhill I can understand the taco, but for AM? I just don't get it.
