It doesn't matter how they're positioned in the marketplace. The second thing to consider is the ratio range they give. It also had a lower quality feel to it, both in use and to look at. Shifts were clean and easy. Its internal works have been updated to include a 12th gear, and improved to enhance trigger feel, precision and durability.
If you just want climbing ability, run a 28-30 front cog with regular 1x11. You are getting a great drivetrain no matter what you go with. This setup works well everywhere. He has honed his pedaling power in road racing, but puts an ample amount of time on the dirt. It also explains why people with 12sp 50T Eagle cassettes report fewer issues backpedaling - there are a few more teeth there to engage the chain.
On climbs, where there is no chance in riding, i tend to carry the bike on my shoulders, since' it's easier for me. Because of this, we dissected the two to make it easy for you. My next ride I'm going to backpedal every downhill to see what the fuss is about. I, and the rest of us voting with our wallets, think otherwise. In some places I need to do a wheelie drop or get over a log, it takes backpedaling and ratcheting to get the sweet foot forward. Hook up two syringes and follow a cycle of suction, push, clamp, etc. Its the heaviest one already, and it would have the least amount of torque on it.
The rings are dialed, and the crankset matches the shifting performance with stiffness and a responsive feel. Where silent precision meets trouble free reliability. You are jumping to alot of conclusions here, do you have any facts to back your hypothesis? Both will drive you places. Sram chain is just a preference- I like their quick link for serviceability, over the split pin Shimano thing. None of this is going to change your mind or my mind.
Does that mean they can't be cross-shopped? This is due to the new finishing process on the inner links and rollers. A few pumps of the lever here and there remedies the situation quickly. People are focusing on it like backwards pedaling is what makes it go. If I had Eagle I would need 40t front which is fkng silly. That should improve overall drivetrain life span as well, compared to running a smaller ring at least. But to stick with the guys questions. We are busy, after all.
Going from 30 to 32 is 6. Compared to its other Eagle siblings, I would feel 100% confident running this on my bike in lieu of the other Eagle groups. There also feels to be lass drag at the derailleur than I get with the Shimano setup. Or go back two years and do the same for any article about 27. I just like the crisp and light lever action of the Sram stuff but I believe that shimano would be more durable in the long run.
You're probably wondering why you've landed here of all places. Read the tech and stats below, then continue on to see our employee reviews. But then again I'm 110kg all geared up and have never been a great climber. You will buy this as the 'sensible shoes' option rather than the dream build. Here, you'll find all the goodies you would've otherwise found at orig, including the best outdoor gear, expert advice and the most impeccable service - all within the E.
Have more energy to descend after a long climb, yes. It's not marketing that dictates what competes with what. They integrate better with Shimano brakes, which are worlds better than Guides. Have fun shopping at Bergfreunde! Shift quality is at least as good. There is absolutely no new technology involved in that derailleur - no new materials and no new manufacturing processes, at least not new in the sense that mankind was already aware of them in other areas.
If you think your post was removed by mistake, use the link in the sidebar and include a link to your post. Saw one in the flesh yesterday at Contermans - looks top notch. That being said, which one is best??? I am happy with this setup but i find that my small cogs work way to hard compared with a 2 x drivetrain. No chance for ratcheting or backpedaling for any reason. But it shifts fine so she hasn't bothered to buy a dedicated 1x crank. Sram deserves the worst for this. Many people stay true to the brand they have been riding and many others just ride it because it is what it is.
