    As derek mentions, that will work fine..... You may have to get the dremal out to fit the bashguard etc. Will not be too difficult though...

    All part of the journey......

    I did see the mechs for dual ring but decided as this is my only bike i will leave it flexible to allow for a 3rd ring.
    It will probably be ok running at 22/36 anyway but if it rides fast i will need that 3rd ring, and change it to a 22/32/42.
    Thanks again.Why cant all forum people be this friendly

    Norcosam , i have an SLX (22-36) crank fitted and run a XT front mech , i have just ordered a SLX double specific front mech to swap out the XT.

    Also i did a bit of reading before going the double ring and running a 22-36 , with your chain on 2-9 big front and small back (highest gear) its nearly the same ratio on a 3 ring set-up as running 3-8 , big ring front 44 and second from last small ring at the back . So the only gain by keeping the big ring is 1 higher gear at top end (usually on the road).

    If you have a 11-13-15-17-20-23-26-30-34 cassette ,

    The ratio on a double set-up

    36-11 = 85.1
    36-13 = 72.0
    36-15 = 62.4
    36-17 = 55.1
    36-20 = 46.8
    36-23 = 40.7
    36-26 = 36.0
    36-30 = 31.2
    36-34 =

    The ratio on a triple set-up

    44-11 = 104
    44-13 = 88
    44-15 = 76.3
    44-17 = 67.3
    44-20 = 57.2
    44-23 = 49.7
    44-26 = 44.0
    44-30 = 38.1
    44-34 =

    So you really only have 1 noticably bigger gear.

    You said you would run 22/32/42

    42 as a big ring

    42-11 = 99.3
    42-13 = 84.0

    My opinion is go for the double ring

    If you change the standard bashring to one like the BBG above , you can shave 100g off the weight too, bringing it down to XT weight .

    i hae to agree with not going tripple ring, I can't give you any fancy numbers why except that when i came back from a weeks riding holiday (admittedly in the alps) there were 4 doop grooves in my bash so I was glad to have it.

    If you buy an E-thirteen guide dont run their bash guards, they weight a ton!
    Gamut bash guards are super light!
