Overall Review:

Enter the Canfield Bro’s 9t Micro Drive Hub. Using this hub with a 10 speed setup, I have a low end of 28x36 and a top end of 28x9, which, if you crunch the numbers, is just shy of the full range of my previous 24/36t x 11-34t.  The range on this hub is absolutely amazing for being a 1x system, and I was able to eliminate the weight and clutter of the second ring, FD, shifter and cable.  SRAM’s XX1 series is the only thing close to the range currently and is drastically more expensive for the full set.  The setup on this hub and cassette conversion was a breeze as well.  I used the PG 1070 and the 4 lower rings just get swapped out for the stack from Canfield, which just stacks one on top of the other and the final lock ring threads on and locks it all securely.  It’s a very simple and effective design, another winner from Canfield!!

Miscellaneous 9t Microdrive Hub

The Canfield Brothers continue to innovate and introduce new products to help you go fast and make your bike better! This is the latest in our collection. The C2 9T micro-drive hub. With this hub you have the ability to run a cassette down to a 9 tooth. This hub is designed around a custom step-down free hub body allowing the fitment of a 10t and 9t cassette cog. The difference between the 11t and 9t is about 20%.

What does this mean? For XC riders you have the option of running a 1x set up with a 9-32/36 cassette. You can also run a 2x or 3x setup for the ultimate gear range. For DH riders, a 9-26 fit’s the bill nicely. With this cassette you are no longer required to run the typical 36-40 chain ring. Remember the 10t is 10% taller than an 11t. And the 9t is 10% taller than the 10t. There’s your 20% difference in gearing. This in combination with the new micro chain guide offerings, allow a chain ring of 28-32. You will gain BB clearance, have less chain and have a more compact overall drivetrain.

The 9t Microdrive hub is designed to use with Shimano's 9 speed Capreo cassette or our 9t 10 speed conversion cogs.
