    I like the look of it, but what does the derailleur look like when the chain is on the biggest sprocket?

    Plenty of slack still when it's in the big mate.......also still got plenty enough b screw adjustment available too. That's the good thing about the roadlink. I run it last year in the alps with a 46/34 front so knew it would work without any issues

    Cheers, I’m not impressed by the Trp rotors and was looking for a decent alternative

    The swisstops do seem very very good and are slightly thicker than the trps

    Not my bike (possibly will be) but these single ring set-ups seem to be gaining a lot of traction in the market. Been researching a number of bikes of this ilk - Cannondale Synapse SE Disc, Giant TCX Advanced SX and Whyte Wessex One

    Had a short ride on one of these a week or so back - with 44T + 10-42 which gives a pretty wide range. Having a longer test ride on Friday if the weather permits.

    First impressions, SRAM double-tap is really intuitive (have tried it before). One ring seems to be less of a faff than two. The big jumps (I guess 'big' is relative to what you are used to) in the cassette range occur in the steep-hill bail out gears and there is zero chain slap on rough roads due to the RD clutch mechanism. Will see how it works out with some hillier riding on Friday.

    I've always been curious about elliptical chain rings so when I needed to replace the chain rings on my full susser I decided to go 1x with an oval ring.

    It's a 1x8 with 32t on the front and 11-34 on the back. It's spot on for trail centres but in all honesty I wouldn't mind one lower gear for long Exmoor/Dartmoor hills. I personally find if I need any lower than that I'm probably at the point where I might as well walk in any case!

    The oval chainring makes a perceptible difference to pedalling feel, and seems to improve/even out the torque and traction when climbing a bit. The main bonus of the 1x set-up on the bike is the narrow wide chainring has reduced the number of dropped chains to pretty much zero.

    This has been frame swapped to this:


    Frame has clearance for 28mm tyres, rear wheel is just on for the turbo, front blue tyre is 28mm, just to see if it fits, brakes have been upgraded to 105 5800's, stem has been lengthened to 100mm, chainring is now a SRAM 42T X-Sync

    It's nothing new, here's one I prepared earlier, I replaced the original 46 tooth chainset with a 40 used with 14-24 Maillard block and Huret derailleur.
