    Cassette range extenders durability

    Hi,

    I'm very tempted to try a 1x10 conversion, 32 Absoluteblack oval front, and 11-42 rear. I tried 1x9 years ago, and loved it except for the limited range.

    Anyway, what's the word on the range extension cogs? Let's say from E-Thirteen, etc

    Thanks in advance

    If you're willing to sacrifice 50g or so, you can get an all steel 11-42 cassette that will last much longer than the Alu extenders. Check out the SunRace cassette thread. Price is pretty similar too and you don't get the annoying gap in cogs around 15-18.

    Those seem great, but it's not easy to find them here in EU

    My friend ran that and didn't like the e13 brand. Kept dropping with the asym/osym ring and it was pretty rough on step up ring too. But his was a 44 step up ring.

    I've got 1,457 miles on a Wolftooth 42 and 897 on a One Up. The WT is showing wear but still works fine. The One Up looks great. I kinda prefer the OU because it comes with a nice 16t cog.

    Thanks Hobine,

    I think that's more or less the entire cassette lifespan, right?

    Garbaruk have extenders as well, and you don't lose the spacing in the middle of the cassette. I paired my Garbaruk 29-35-42 with an XT 11-24 lower section. It's light, shifts fine and the spacing is decent.

    I can't be alone in saying that 29-35-42 sounds awful... even 36->42 on my X01 is annoyingly big of a jump at times and 29->35 and 35->42 are both even bigger. Different strokes I guess

    I went with an E13 42 tooth extender on my hardtail in June and have had excellent results. I ride 40-60 miles a week and weigh about 235 now. I haven't had any trouble out of it.

    I should think it'll last quite some time, I run one and rarely change up to it. If you gear it to use as a bailout gear, it should wear reasonably well.

    I'm not sure whether the fact that you have those mileage numbers so exact is impressive, or sad.

    I have several hundred miles on a OneUp 42 (that's about as accurate as I can get), and it's still going strong.

    One year on OneUp 40t expander, around 5000km. 16t sprocket died after about 9 months, 40t ended up in the trash last night.
    Don't know exact milage as i don't measure it, but I've ridden quite a bit this year so 5000km might be an understatement.

    I am using 1145 and 30 in front but I am afraid the 45 (OneUp) will last forever unless I find different trails ... my new Mojo HD3 is so efficient uphill that I almost never use the 40 ... On my Mojo 11 had 1142 (One-Up) and even if I was more often on the low gear it was still fine after 18 months ... then they he stole the bike
