Garbaruk Xtender for Shimano XT 11-speed Cassettes - Review
@IllestT: I agree completely. I'm racing and winning on a triple close ratio chainring setup (26-34-40) on a 27.5 which gives me two full more lower gears than a typical 1 x 11 setup and the 40t chainring lets me have a top speed to be as fast as any 29er with a 36t single chainring setup. This close ratio means only 8 gears difference between my inner 26t chainring and 34t middle chainring, and only 6 gears difference between the 34t middle and 40t outer. This small difference between chainrings makes the shifting faster and smoother.The triple also lets my chain stay more in line with the rear cogs, and keeping my 26t steel chainring means 90% o the time 'Im on the lowest gears, I'm also on steel cogs front and rear which translates to much less wear and tear than climbing on aluminium chainrings or cogs. It also keeps the unsprung weight off my rotating rear wheel ( rotating a larger diameter mass and weight means more effort). Using this I'm completely happy and ready for any occasion racing cross country with a 27.5

First Ride: SRAM's 12-Speed Eagle Drivetrain
I apologize. I didnt mean single speed, I meant 1x 29er

front they don't work perfectly all the time unless maintaince is performed fairly often. Front derailleurs are a much cheaper way to get the widest range of gearing on a bike. On the other hand, 1x systems are limited especially on 27.5 wheeled bikes as they don't provide enough top speed to keep up with a single speed on the flats. You need at least three to four more teeth on a chainring to equal the same speed on a 27.5 as a 29er. Check out bike calc.com and research it yourself.

OneUp Switch Chainring System - Review
@mgolder: What about the chain alignment? even with a tighter cassette cog grouping and a thinner chain alignment is going to be felt thru the crank when you apply force. I bet a straighter chain is an easier chain to turn slightly no matter what the thickness is. And for many many dollars cheaper . I'm not saying this is a bad idea but its not like it is a critical difference over a triple or double chainring setup. I continue to win and place top three in my age group in xc races on my triple setup and 27.5 (dated) wheels
