    The only issue I've had is that the drive side cup is very tight which makes it difficult to adjust. So far no noise or slippage from it. Seems fine.

    Another not-quite-weight-weenie-material bike, but light for me at 19.4 lbs. Still need to shorten the cables and test out the new 1X setup.

    Thx for the comments.

    Yep, those are (tiny) 26" wheels, 1.95.

    Chainring is 28T. I lose the top 3 ratios (which I never use), and the bottom 2 ratios, which may hurt on some climbs. We'll see.

    But I also lose ~400g.

    That's a pretty small ring even if you have a 11-34 9 speed cassette...
    RAH!

    Yep, it is, but I didn't want to lose any more ratios on the low end. They offer 30, 32, and 34T combos too, but each one is obviously a trade off.

    i have 35t to a 11-36 cassette making my low ratio 1.029. If you are on a 34t cassette you have 1.214. as for top end I have 0.314 and you 0.393. I just don't see why you'd need to go that low for a 1x9.
    RAH!

    Actually, the calculations show that our setups are pretty close.

    Depending on how you slice it, I lose the 2 bottom and the 3 top (in red below) from a typical 3x9. Your setup loses the 3 bottom, but only the 2 top.

    ^ Nice looking bike! I don't know if I could handle the rainbow thing though. I'd hate to have some other guy put the moves on me while on the trail.
