    Not sure what size cassette to get.

    I am planning my custom reign x build and not sure what cassette to go with or if my crank is right choice. I have chosen a 28-42 crank. My current reign has a 3x9 with 11x34.

    Look at a gear-inch chart and see what comes close, or not, to what you have now. Assuming you have a 22 or 24 granny now, you might loose a bit on the small end range.

    I would get a 11-36 if I was going to be riding it.

    At the very least, you need to know the type of trails that you are likely to ride, your fitness level, and the gear-inch chart in order to make a good decision. It's just a guess if you don't know these things.
