    Post up your 1x drivetrains

    I converted my standard Shimano double setup over to "ghetto" 1x:

    Wolf Tooth 42t n/w ring
    Shimano Ultegra short cage 11-spd r. der (set the spring to the tighter setting)
    Shimano XT 11-40 11-spd cassette
    Praxxis Works chain guide
    Wolf Tooth Road Link

    Works great but looking forward to picking up the new Ulegra RX clutched r. der for extra chain retention when it comes out soon.

    My next bike will probably have Sram 1x with a 42/10-42 which I think would be a *little* better range than I have now plus the superior 1x technology. Just have to get used to the double tap.

    Rival 1 hydro with 42 up front and 11-42 rear (NX cassette I think).

    Excellent on the road, though I could use a little more high gear if I am out with guys on full blown road bikes.

    Perfect on dirt paths.

    A bit over geared on gravel/single tracks.

    38c triggers, but probably swapping to resolute 42s

    ok I am swapping a 2x compact Rival 22 group to a gravel bike - I bought a Sram 1x 42t front ring, and looking at rear derailleurs.. I see in the Rival line there are type 2.1 and now the newest 3.0 - and I cannot find out the differences in the versions... I am pretty sure the cage length has nothing to do with it as both cages are available in the 3.0 version...

    Thanks in advance

    No difference outside, just the torx screw on the clutch.

    Sram says it provides a "smoother torque curve for a quieter, more consistent operation and feel".

    Mine is type 2.1, and has been flawless. My wife's Apex 1 is type 3, and has also been flawless.

    Mine's a cross bike I use for the odd gravel ride/race. Rival 1 with 38/11-32. Chainring is Raceface, brakes are Spyres, everything else is Rival. I think a bit more range on each end (40/11-36, maybe) might be a better match for the gravel riding I do, but I don't need that kinda range for CX and I haven't felt like spending the money yet.

    Rival 1 shifters/brakes, Rival 1 derailleur, Easton EC90 crank with 44T chainring. Switching to AB oval 42T ring, shortly. KMC X11SL chain.

    Chorus 11 with a 40t Wolf Tooth chainring on an Ultegra crankset. Cassette is a custom 14-34 Ultegra. Shifter and derailler are Chorus with Hope jockey wheels.

    It might be a 38t in the pic and I may have a Roadlink on, but it wasn't necessary so I removed it.

    Ok thanks for the answers... one other quick question... I am running DT240 hubs and if I get a XD driver for them I can run one of the bigger cassettes like a 10-42 with the rival 1 long cage stuff right - the derailleur can handle a 42 - is the XD the only way to get those big gears and still have a 10t? or is it even worth the 10 if I have a 11t now.

    Thanks

    As far as I know, the XD driver is necessary to get the 10t at all, regardless of big cog size. There are some non-XD cassettes with 42t+ big cogs with 11t small cogs.

    You will need the XD driver and end cap to run a 10t.

    Is it worth it? Thats up to you. If you have enough low gear and don't top out the high end, then no, its not.

    A 42t with an 11-42 has the same high gear as a 38t with 10-42, and you get a lower gear.

    Or you can split the difference and run a 40t and gain on each end.

    The difference between 10 and 11 is quite a bit.

    I don't need anymore high end with a 11-40 and a 42....could do a 11-42 to get a little more low end. I do think the 10 gives you a little more range but certainly not a deal breaker.

    It is more range, quite a bit, but if you don't need it, there's no point.

    It's an expensive upgrade, the XD driver and end cap is over $100 for a DT hub, and any of the decently light weight cassettes are over $200.
