    Axis Build - Double or Triple?

    Ok, stupid noob question, but I'm starting to troll for parts, and I'm pondering drivetrain: The Axis originally came spec'd with a triple crank. Is there an argument for/ag'in a double vs a triple? Whata y'all do?

    Thanks, more inane questions forthcoming...

    Depends what you want to do with the bike. If you're racing it the triple is completely unecessary, but if you want to do extended offroad climbs or short tours then it might come in handy.
