    2015 Santa Cruz Bronson C - Cassette suggestions

    Hello,
    I am currently running a 1x set up on 2015 Santa Cruz Bronson C with original Shimano HG 81 Cassette on rear. I am looking to upgrade and go bigger and looking for suggestions.
    Wolf Tooth or One Up cog?
    Shimano HG 500?
    Praxis 10 speed wide range cassette?

    Thanks for any info/suggestions.

    Check into SunRace cassettes if you want a wide range 10 spd cassette( or a 11 spd cassette). The cassettes are very reasonably priced and work very well.

    What's your ring, cassette group and rr derailleur setup now? Are you looking to just replace same cog spread cassette as the one you have now or trying to achieve an easier climbing gear ratio?
    Wait whuuut, who did he tell you that!?!?....

    It is a 11-36 SLX HG 81 cassette with
    Shimano XT M786 GS Shadow Plus for rear derailleur

    Trying to get easier ratio on the climbs.

    I had the same 11-36 cassette and changed it to a sunrace 11-40 for my fatbike. That made a noticeably better bail out gear with no downgrade in shifting either. Bonus!
