Shimano does 1x11
#1
New Xtr kit. Doesn't offer quite the range of the sram 1x11 though which is a shame.

Only 11-40 cassette, rubbish. I guess you could use a Sram 9-42 with a Shimano 11sd mech though.

Oh liking this, think there will be other companies offering after market cassettes to go with this with a bigger range. Main thing is the  derailleur will take 11 speed. Did wonder how long it was going to take for shimano to get this out.

A 11-40 cassette is good, they keep the close ratios. With the 40-42t cogs that are now available you loose the 17t, which i found to be very noticeable.

Have you ditched the 40 tooth now then? One Up supply you with another cog for free, think it's a 16 tooth to replace the 15, which is supposed to reduce the gap. Haven't read any reviews yet.

No still got the 40t, get up everything as usual round surrey. Ive done exactly what oneup now provide, i found a 16t xt cog and replaced the 15t, its miles better than before, im not sure i could have kept it with the 19t> 15t jump.

One Up components are giving them away free with the 42's, and also said on their facebook page that people that have bought a 42 should email them and ask for a 16 which they will send you FOC. They will be selling them on their own soon, at the moment all their current stock is packaged with the 42.

Thanks guys, as said I think I could live without it, it's just on the odd occasion that Iv found myself keep shifting up and down looking for the gear I want and not finding it. 16t should work a treat  ;D
