    Let's Talk 2x10

    Why 2x10? SRAM's video answer from their Product Managers is below.

    Found this on SRAM's Facebook site:

    http://sram2x10.com/?p=910

    <object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/7VR3LOpSSWQ&color1=0x5d1719&color2=0xcd311b&hl=en_ US&feature=player_embedded&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/7VR3LOpSSWQ&color1=0x5d1719&color2=0xcd311b&hl=en_ US&feature=player_embedded&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>

    Don't know about y'all but I am stoked for 2x10 X.7/X.9!
    It's not where it's made but how it's made.

    OK let's talk 2X10. It means we're talking X-Glide, which means if you're riding a 29'er your sorta screwed.

    A 26 tooth small ring is almost a 29 tooth equivalent on a 29'er. That might work for a pro but that would make me get off and push a lot more than I have to on my 22-32-44 equipped 26" bike. Look on a triple the difference between the big and the small is 2:1 on the X-Glide bike it's 1.5:1. That's less range no matter what cassette is on the wheel.

    Pro's can ride that gearing, I am not a pro.

    Luckily, they're making a 3x10 crank for the non-pros like yourself.
