    SRAM CX1 coming soon

    Ryan Trebon and Elle Anderson rode the new CX1 drivetrain to 2nd place finishes at Nationals. Looks super sweet: SRAM CX1 1x11 cyclocross drivetrain - First look - BikeRadar

    Just read that. It's getting closer to coming to fruition! I've been running XX1 on my MTB for the past year with no issues. I'd like to get a ride in on CX1 first though, as I do like having the option of 2x10 (or 11) for CX. I've acquired my new frame for the 2014-15 CX season, and I've got a clean canvas to work with, so who knows.

    im just going to run a x9 type 2 with a 40T wolfstooth chainring, will probably be cheaper too.

    Yep, I've used that very drivetrain this season, but with a 38t ring and an 11-28 cassette. Absolutely no problems in a very wide range of conditions. I think CX1 will be very prevalent next year.

    one thing im wondering about CX1 is if bike manufactures are going to leave off the FD braze on. If they did it would be pretty annoying, hopefully they can make either round seat tubes or a removeable braze on. I think 1x for a race bike is will be great, but for just riding around sometimes you want 2 rings.
