Like speed on a road, does anyone have one?
I assume you mean sram eagle ? compared to a"normal " set up .
All depends on the gear ratios of the set up compared to the alternative, all things being equal tyres, bike, wheels etc you are only as fast as the gear you can pedal.Whether its 1x or any other set up the gear inches are the same.
What is a 'front big crank'?
what is a shram eagle ?
Mod note: Title now corrected
Either a groupset or a bird on a bike?
is it an endangered species.
LOL, Yes very much so,There habitat is has an ever increasing number of there rival a dangerous predator called motorist that shows no mercy
Sram Eagle was developed to help those running 1x to have a decent top end speed by having a larger front ring whilst maintaining low gears for climbing. They still have fairly large steps between each gear. But riding a MTB doesnt require close ratio cassettes unless riding downhill.
A large front ring onto an 11 tooth rear is still going to be quicker on the top end
With me pedalling, certainly, a lot faster*.
*I may have exaggerated a little** here!
**OK, A lot.
That's a big chainring. The crank is fairly normal length. The whole assembly is a crankset or chainset - 2 cranks and chainring, or rings.
WOW Sorry guys i do websites and computers normally but i love my bike now and am still figuring out all the words and stuff
Ok so lets say you have that 1x 32 tooth front ring and your cycling on a road on a slight incline. will the top speed on the lowest back ring like an 11 tooth be slower than a setup with a slightly larger front ring? I am currently on a 3x kona blast and i only ever use the lower ring and the biggest front ring as the wheels are too big on the back and catch on the gears. I just dont want to be going slower but i like how clean the Sram Eagle looks like.
Depends how fast you can spin whatever gear you are in - cadence.
Have a play with this gear calculator.
What terrain are you riding on and how hilly is it? Utilise all the gears. That's what they are there for
