I love my Wolftooth. Have yet to drop a chain. With a strong pulling derailleur like the Retroshift BURD this seems to be a winning combination. Trust me, my 1x10 was a dropchain disaster before...

The BURD derailleur feels like a solid unit, it should be at 200.6 grams. The springs have some great pull. When combined with the Wolftooth dropstop chainring it'll be a bulletproof drive train. ...

Retroshift just sent a second email, the order shipped. Again, there was some hogwash about Goats in the message. The punchline, it was only a couple day delay.

HATED IT. The low spoke counts leave large sections of rim unsupported. I had a rear rim dent on a pothole. Had the hub laced again and the next rim dented too. Worthless. The braking surfaces...

Full size linear pull brakes have tons of power and modulation. I just switched from the elegance of road brakes and find full size linear pulls equally good. If you grab a travel agent you can run...

Thought I'd share the tribulations of switching to 1x10. Final setup:

Tektro RL520 front brake lever replaces brifter.

if it still hurts after 2-4 weeks, new saddle. However, only 4 days could be settling in.

OP

It's cool to see somebody wearing a mask, I might try wearing one too. Polyaromatic hydrocarbons in soot and visible exuast are disgusting and hazardous. Anything that helps, sign me up.
