    Scalpel 29 + xx1 anyone?

    Hi. Have any of you plans on putting these things together?
    I am seriously considering putting this on with a 36 in front. Any comments?

    I'm going with 34 or 36 on my 26", some climbs might get tougher, but that'll even out in leg strength after a while I guess.

    The front ring size really depends of your legs and where you ride... but XX1 really does make sense (to me). I already use a 1x10 setup on my Scalpel, I still need to experiment with the chainring size though but I really like it.

    Just picked up a 2013 scalpel, and I'm seriously considering doing this.

    My only concern is with some reports of issues with the sram type 2 rear derailleurs knocking after a while.

    Makes a ton of sense for me, particularly here in the midwest.
