i was taking the tour at the I9 factory and one of the guys mentioned that some of the locals in Aseville NC were riding 2 X 5 drivetrains. taking single speed wheels and using the low end (23t-32t) cluster of cassettes on the free hub. and then somewhere around 28t and 40t in the front.
he said that the cassette cluster fits nicely and the whole set up makes for a lighter more simplistic drivetrain with a better chainline.
i'm kinda interested now and wanna give it a try.
anyone out there have a setup like this? experenced and problems? pros and cons?
