    Carbine 26er or 27.5 with 1x10 using wolfthoot or other company, R u happy?

    So i have been riding my carbine 26er in 1x10 (11x36 in the back and 30 in the front) for about 3 months, I am happy but there are times I would like to have something small for some climbs. are u guys happy doing 40 or 42 in the back and the whole changes u need to do? or are you waiting for 1x11 become more affordable? If you are happy what is your setup? pictures?

    If you are happy with your 1x10 except for the granny i'd just get a 40/42t for the rear. The only reason to go 11 speed would be to gain the 10t. x1 is out already and really its not that cheap. My buddy put a One up 40t on his x9 setup, works flawlessly and One up included the 16t cog.

    I'm running a 32T Wolf up front and 11X40 in the rear on my Carbine 275. Went with the 40t because I heard the 42t is really pushing the limits of a rear derailleur designed for 36t. I went with the One Up components 40t and the 16t was thrown in as a bonus. Removing the 15t and 17t to replace with 16t keeps the range between gears a little more even. I find my shifting to be as good as ever, and only rarely wish for a lower gear. Figure just ride more, get stronger and no need for lower gears. Between the Xtr plus derailleur and the Wolftooth chainring I have no chain slap or any noise at all. I only hear tires on dirt.

    I've got a Wolf Tooth 30t upfront and the WT 42 on an XT cassette. With an X9 RD it shifts fine. I was surprised that I didn't need to turn the B-tension screw in too much. The cog comes with a longer B tension screw but I didn't need to use it. Bikes a Carbine SL BTW.
