    9 or 10 speed

    Im debating between 9 or 10 speed. Does it even matter? That one extra gear in the rear?

    My initial instinct with cx is to just HTFU and go 9 Speed. It is the cheapest...(which watching all of the road guys dump their 9 speed gear for 10 speed..seems 9 speed stuff is a good way to go...)

    or am I wrong?

    I would go 9-speed, but not for the reason you're talking about.

    9-speed offers a HUGE variety and range of cassettes and rear derailleurs. 10-speed, not so much.
