    SRAM X1 Change 10T to 11T

    Hi,

    I was wondering if it's possible to change the 10T cog to an 11T cog on the 11 speed SRAM X1 casette? I find the jump from 12T to 10T to be too extreme. Also, I run a 32T in the front so I don't really need more top end. I think 11x32 will be plenty fast.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure about swapping one cog, but you could get a Shimano cassette 11-42.
    Just be aware that 1 tooth makes a big difference, since it is 10% of the small cog. A 32x10 is around the same ratio as a 35x11, so you give up quite a lot on the high end. Put another way, you could keep the 10 and have a 29T chainring and have the same high end as the 32x11, with a much better low.

    I don't hear this complaint much, and it might mean that you are spending too much time on the small end of the cassette. You could consider a bigger chain ring, which would keep you more toward the middle-big end, and you might no longer care about the 12 to 10 drop.
