I sure hope we get 9-36t cassettes before they even start talking about 11 speed anything...

Although - a dream come true - finally a bike that goes to 11!!!

Mo cowbell.

9t doesn't work because of the polygon effect. Read about it in Bikeradar's presentation of the XX1, where it was told the protos used a 9t cog from the Shimano commuter grouppo.

Unless Shimano decided touse a 10 mm pitch chain for their 1x11 group, then they could use an 11t in a 1/2" 9T cog diameter.

EDIT: damn you search and my lack of looking at dates... -_-
