I recently got back into riding. I currently have a 3x9 XT drive train.
After doing some reading on here I was considering a new 2x10 set up but had a question.
I wanted to know opinions on the 2x10 fit for my riding style and terrain.
I ride mostly XC, in our area there aren't normally really long climbs.
I paid attention to my shifting habits on today's ride. I do a lot of riding in my largest chainring. When I come to hill I just drop to the middle ring and climb, once I get to the top and start down I'm back in the large ring.
I read that in a 2x10 I only lose those last two gears, which I never find my self in.
Right now I like that going from the large chainring to the middle is a quick change in the gear ratio. I fear going to 2x10 I'll have to make a lot more shifts to make the same change.
Maybe I just have poor shifting technique.
I'd like to hear some opinions please.
