Yeah, bummer. I understand new 26" bike sales have dropped precipitously, but there are still tons of 26" bikes out there that will need tires for many years to come.

Thanks for the review. I Have'n tried this particular cog, but I've experimented with a 41t cog. I too hated the gap in shifting. I experimented with removing different cogs and never found a good option. The cold hard facts are, there will be an ugly gap in the cassette no matter what. I also experience subpar shifting. To top it all off, the 41t cog bent because it wasn't attached to the cassette. I just ponied up for xx1. I'm not convinced add a cog is a good alternative, though it can be a relatively cheap way to experiment with wide range 1x before bending over and paying sram too much for 1x11.

For those simply looking for the lightest DM stem, there are alloy options just as light and actually a hair lighter:

It's true that clutch mechs with NW rings are a big improvement, but hangers and mechs will always be prone to bending. 10 and 11 speeds are more finicky when it comes to alignment too. If I had all the money I've spent on mangled hangers and mechs over the years I could fund this project!
