    who is running a 1x setup on your fatty?

    Who is running a 1x setup and im curious if anyone is running a one up or wolf tooth 42 tooth rear gear on cassette. I am thinking about upgrading my spec fatboy to a 1080 rear cassette and a one up 42 tooth setup.

    I used to run 1x9 in Indiana, 30T chain ring front, 11-34 cassette.
    I put granny back on now that I live in the mountains. New bike will be 1x10 with a 42 added.

    I run 1x10 (1070) w/32T up front on both of my bikes, but we're mainly XC trails near me.

    34 x 12/36, mostly X/C trails. I may go 32 this winter though.

    I'm running 1x10 on my Ti Mukluk. Xt cassette with Wolftooth 42 Gc replaced the 15&17 with a One up 16 and am running a Wolftooth 26 XX1 direct mount front. I was afraid to go so low up front at first but I climb the crap out of this beast and had to get as close to 22x36 as I could get. I've got about 2 months use out of this set up and can honestly tell you I will never go back.

    1x9 on my pugsley
    30T front and 12-36 rear

    Seems to be a pretty good range for single track but could use a few gears lower for long hills or soft snow.

    Tried the Wolftooth with XTR and I didn't really care for the shifting in the smaller cogs. went to x01 and much gooder now. From my experience and from what I have read people are having better results with Sram+42 hack than Shimano. Oh and since this is now a pic thread.

    And I love beer!!

    For me it's not about needing a lower gear it'a about being able to run a bigger ring up front to gain range running a single.

    30 x 11 gives me PLENTY of top end, and running the 30 keeps my most often used gears out back right in the middle of the cassette, meaning way less cross chaining and longer chain/drivetrain life. straighter chain=more efficient chain.

    I'm using a poor man's cassette with a WolfTooth 42T in rear and a WolfTooth 30T in front. Works fairly well. Seems to be sensitive about hanger alignment.

    I really have been thinking a lot about going 1x10, but just don't know if I can handle w/o 22/36 in da winter.

    It would be a great setup though if you had the legs to push it. I like slow crawling, and if 30x42 can get me enough low end I would be in.

    I'm running a 28 up front with a 10-42 in back, stock XX1 with grip shift. It's geared a little low for some riding, I might change to a 30 up front for certain things. I like how clean the cockpit is with the grip shift and no shifting on the left side.

    Same here, 28 is a tad low at least in the summer for myself as well. I have a 30 on order and might even try a 32.

    who is running a 1x setup on your fatty?

    Love the simplicity of a 1X drivetrain.


    X01/Wolftooth 32t/grip shift


    X9 10 speed with a Wolftooth 42t GC, Raceface 32t narrow wide, X9 trigger shifter.
    Don't think I'll ever go back to a front derailleur setup.
