    Nice, I like a rider who's prepared. I usually carry my headtube facing and reaming tool incase I ever need an emergency reaming.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    +1 on pg990 11-34. Unfortunately my dh rig is the only bike I have so the 34 tooth sprocket helps with climbs.

    Whatever I find in my boxes of random spare parts, preferably shimano. I have problems in the past with bending cogs on SRAM ones.

    I ride an 11-32 9 speed Sram cassette. Just a midrange model, nothing flashy. Also to note, I ride a 42t chainring.

    When I ride local trails I run 11-34T & 34T up front for more climbing ability. For shuttle or lift assisted rides I run 11-26T & 36T up front.

    I went with the PG980 since it was basically same weight as the 990 but a bit cheaper. Such a huge step up from the PG950 I ran previously. Went with 11-34 since I use the same bike for DH/FR.

    If NOT racing, why have a narrow 11-2x instead of 11-3x?
    Lacerations through intact armor are a mark of talent... or stupid... or both...

    Being new to DH can someone explain to me why go with an 11-23 or something simular rather the 11-32 or 34? I would think if I had to do some pedaling i would want that big ring in the back to make it easier. Again I am new to DH so go easy.

    It's about getting speed, while going down a hill. The smaller spread is usually all you'd need. With a regular mountain cassette, the spread is too wide and gives you less working gears. That, plus weight.
    I swap cassettes, depending on what I'm riding.
    I ride a 34T up front and a DuraAce 11-23T out back, or an XT 11-32T.

    When I get all the parts I'll be running the shimano caprio cassette 9-26t on the Canfield micro drive hub. X0 cranks with a 32t MRP bling ring and MRP G2 SL Micro guide. Wide range of gears, crank and ring are silly light, micro guide is lighter and lower profile with a 32t gives you increased ground clearance as well. With a 13.8 bb height every bit counts.

    i got the same exact ratio , 34t front , 11-23t. i cant pedal up, if i know a trial has climbs i switch to my 11-32.

    i like to have the smaller 11-23 because the gears are close makes it easier to shift up and down while pedaling hard. also itd save you over 100 grams in compare to a 11-34 cassette

    I have a question. I normally ride a 2012 specialized camber but am looking into a specialized status 1? i will be getting rid of my camber and am looking at riding the status for my main bike.. Would there be a gear or cassette combo that would still allow me to ride uphill pretty good?

    With dh, most of the time you're doing just that, going down a hill, so there is no need for high gears. A freeride bike is a diff story, I always have 11-3X on my freeride bikes, but there is no need for high gearing on a dh bike, unless you want to ride back up the hill.
