    New work stand, feels pretty solid Amazon had it on sale for 39.00....why not? Is better than no stand.

    Although I read the 11-46 XT cassette won't require a goat link but I don't like the gear distribution by shimano, it's like a 11-34 cassette attached to a 46t sprocket.

    I have a stand very much like that one I'm pretty sure is from the same company, very cheap but solid. I think the clamp will probably be the failure point, but feels like it will last at least a couple years.

    Probably.
    A fellow rider got an 11-42 cassette installed without the goat link and has lots of shifting problems. I have been running the same setup in 10 speeds with the goat link without any trouble. I think is worth it.

    Check the teeth distribution on this cassette. In my opinion is more efficient.

    I replaced my broken long RD with a mid RD and the only way it would shift properly was to install a Goat link.

    Yes. It's worth every penny, shifting problems sucks. Did you get the 10th or the 11th?

    Sunrace 11-46 Cassette
    Shimano 11 speeds XT combo
    SRAM 11speed chain

    HERE IS MY QUESTION

    Should I degrease the new chain or simply lube it and wipe off the excess.

    Added some OneUp stuff. ISG-05 top chain guide and decided to try oval. Did a fun 20 mile ride on it and it felt good. Not sure I noticed a big difference from the round I have been running though.

    I got a top guide myself and a round 32t front ring. They make fantastic products

    Depending on your weight, I run my ctd in the trail position and no pedal Bob even on the worse climbs.

    All kitted up I'd be around 245

    Our climbs are pretty steep and continuous

    I've got an rp23 float on my 29er and use the pro pedal mode for climbs and flatter stuff then flip the switch for the descents.

    Fiddling with knobs makes riding more fun
