    11-38 or 11-40 cassette 10-sp?

    Anyone know if this exists?

    From the main brands: no
    KCNC is rumored to produce a 11-38 this year, but when?

    Too bad

    I don't think KCNC would be an alternative. I've had a couple of their 9-sp Ti and even Alu cassettes and it was not worth it in my opinion. And on the trailbike the weight isn't that important either! I'm running a 11-36 today, but I think I'd fancy a bit lighter 1. gear together with the single front for the long steep climbs.

    A smaller chainring on the front is not an option? Don't what you have now, but they are available in 1 tooth steps from some manufacturers.

    Yeah, well, I'm running a 32 in front on a 104mm bcd crankset. Maybe 30t could be an option? But it is limited space on this bcd..

    30t might be available, but not sure it will fit every crank.
    Afraid you might just have to get stronger in the legs...

    I might not have the best phase at the moment, but it depends of what you mean.. On the XC race bike I'm running a single 34 in front and that's no problem. But the thing is the trail bike is a lot heavier and don't climb that well and I wan't to do longer/stepper climbs without having to work so much.

    So I have to think of something..

    Does 30t exist for a xtr 960, 102mm bcd?

    You're probably not gonna find 2 less tooth for those 2mm won.
    I have heard from people using the granny position for the single chainring, just have to take care of the chainline.
    Probably better use a 2x crankset for that.

    QFMFT.

    Or run a granny ring.

    Or get a SS and build those legs up. 32/38 or 32/40 gear combo would be so slow you might as well walk up the hill.

    i'd be interested in a

    28/42 x 11~28
    or
    30/44 x 11~30

    currently I run a 22/32/42 x 11~32....and either I can tune a reliable shift to 22 or 42 end, but not for both ends, so I'd like an option for a two ring to improve front shifting precision.

    Standard derailleur
    Standard hub

    Weight is 290g

    Take a Sram 11-36 cassette, change the last 4 cogs by the 4 custom cogs and that's it !

    Thanks, I did not look in the comments. According to the website, they do not ship to the US.

    Maybe he wants to run a 1x setup & wants to run a bigger than 32 front ring.

    Maybe he needs to realize he isn't fast enough or fit enough to run that kind of gearing and needs to get a granny ring.

    1X is great if your strong enough to run it. But there seem to be a bunch of lemmings jumping to it that are not strong enough to make it work with commonly available parts.

    Some people just like to tinker & good on them, not every body has the time to get super fit but that doesn't mean that they can't play with there bikes.
