humm... I just replaced my big ring w/ a bash ring and was wondering the same thing?
Did you keep the 22/32/bash set up or did you change out the middle ring? I'm running a 22/36/bash set up and really like it. I still have a pretty decent top end and I seem to ride just a little bit faster with the 36 and any combo in the back. I also feel better ramming into things and not having to worry about breaking teeth off of a big ring.
