    Want a 11-36 cassette for longer range or even a 1x9 setup?

    Too bad for you, as it's not 9-speed! Count...



    Ain't this just intriguing?

    Someone's offering this set on a Dutch classifieds website, for a low amount. Brand supposedly is Recon, very little relevant Google hits on that, just that they made crappy teep and some alu cassette's.
    Seller says 12-36, but I see an 11t in there.

    Would take away most of the need for a compact crankset to compensate for the larger wheels, wouldn't it?

    It might be nine speed. Looks to me that either the 11 or 12 would be needed for the lock ring to snug up against. The smallest cog actually on the cluster doesn't seem to have the serrations for the lock ring.

    That would give it away too easily. After all the "oh, my 22/34 granny gear feels so tall with the big wheels" posts, 11-36 regardless of gearcount should score hundreds of clicks already.
    I must say, if the ratio's seem to be spread nicely over the cassette. Would they just have added a 36t to a typical 11/12/14/16/18/21/24/28/32 ?

    I think you would have issues whith the rear derailure. I have problems getting enough clearance with a 34 there is not enough adgustment with the b tention screw.

    You could conceivably break it apart and build a custom 11-36 8 or 9 speed cassette using the right spacers.

    The RD clearance problem though. . .

    Looks great for the 1X10!

    If a current 9 speed derailleur would work a guy could always use the Paul Thumbies and the dura ace bar end shifter and have a super cool 10 speed rear. Awesome! Any idea where to get'em? Weight? Cost? This is really neat-

    I have posted this on Drivetrain and Weight as well, all I get is questionmarks.
    I think the RD will be fine. A road derailer can take a 32 while it says 32t max. How would a 34t max MTB RD work then? Also, some RD's use an 11t upper pulley, some 10t. I just put an 11t in a Tiagra long cage, and it seems to work just fine, with some B-tension adjustment. That was with 12-27, though.
