If the price is right, I'll bite. 30:42 will work fine compared to my 26:36 for steep climbs. Looks like I'll be getting rid of my FD within the next 12 months... thanks for the responses.

What he said. I've been running XX1 on two bikes now for about 600 miles total (not at the same time--bought a new frame and swapped over) and 8 races run, 9 more for sure scheduled, and at least three or four more not yet figured out. All but two races have been enduros over...more

There are a few very nice benefits to SRAM's system. Bigger range, chain retention with far less friction, improved shifting, fewer skips, less noise, etc, etc.

So aside from the "because it goes to 11" reason, why not just go 1x10 and save your pennies for other things, if you are ok, but not a contender? I mean, I am no contender, so if I have a cheaper option to go without a FD, why would I buy all this new stuff?
