    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.

    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.
