    Absolutely. And it would solve a lot of the problems arising from fitting a front derailleur into a frame with short chainstays and lots of tire clearance. I'm about to build a trailbike with a 1x10 drivetrain: 28t x 11-36. I'm using a Hope hub, so if they ever come out with their 9-36 integrated cassette, I should be ready to go. I'm glad Canfield is on this track, too.

The hubs rotation multiplier is not a factor in my books.
    Hey big, when you get your micro drive and guide installed please post some pics and give us your thoughts. I would love to hear how you like it when they become available. Cheers

    I am concerned about weight to a degree. I have a DT Swiss 240 on there now and don't want a rear hub alone adding half a pound to my trail bike. I will some of that going single front but I think a weight concious solution would be better received in a 135x9 format by the masses without question. I imagine a lot of people would consider this for trail duties.

    What crank set are you going to stick the spiderless ring on?

    An X9.

    I wanted an X0, but couldn't really justify it. There are some pretty good deals on eBay, but none of them had the new 64/104 spiders with lower gearing, which I want if I decide against the 1x setup at some point.

    now your just rubbing salt into the wound...

    Respectable weight for a hard-hitting set, ring included.

    Now if I could just get me some Canfield hoops to go with the Micro, and a 20mm front to complement.....I wonder..idea:

    Shimano - Capreo Style 9-Speed Cassettes

    So far I have found these to cassette...

    9-26t: 9,10,11,13,15,17,20,23,26
    9-32t: 9,10,11,13,15,18,21,26,32

    I am running the 9-26 setup till I switch to SS.

    One other note you can not mix and match gears from other cassettes.

    That is just for that cassette eh..... And for 10 speed you would be able to choose the remainder gears with the provided mini-cluster?

    I was planning on using the Capreo 9,10,11 gears, then for my last 6 I was going to use Shimano Dura-Ace gears. By doing that I was going to save about 60+ grams. It did not work, spacing between two gears did not match up. More info on that latter I am not at home.

    I had sram DH cassette on the floor it is a 11-26( or 12-26 ) so I pulled the 4 biggest gears(size wise). It worked! Saves 20 grams only but its a start. More in on this as I look into other cassettes. Spacing wise however it looks great but once I get rear wheel built I will test shifting.

    EDIT:

    Looks like its the first 4 gears are mandatory 9.10,11,13. After that you can make the last 5 work depending on cassette/gears you use.

    A few pics... (loading them now)
    Stock cassette 9-26t: 9,10,11,13,15,17,20,23,26 (243 grams)


    And setup I am going with 9-27t; 9,10,11,13,15,17(18 on order),21ti,24ti,27ti (172 grams)

    The 9T micro drive works really well. I had the great luck of getting to run it for most of last year on my Jedi. 9-26 with a 32 front ring is a huge spread for the normal DH bike.

    Here is a little clip of it in action:

    I will check the rim for you when I get home. I think it was like 560 but not sure.

    And the hubs are loosing weight so you will be fine.

    EDIT:
    I have two unlaced rims here, they come up at 534 & 532 grams.
