    Raced yesterday on a very bumpy, teeth rattling course. No dropped chains. The wide/narrow chainring with a 105 rear derailleur is doing the trick.

    Kruger's Krossing? It definitely favors the road bike with higher volume tires. I had my @$$ handed to me back in May, but had a blast none-the-less.

    I'm putting the upgrade path on hold for now. I like the smaller 105 rear derailleur and the Race Face chainring is doing the trick. I have 60 days to decide if I want to keep the SLX Shadow rear...

    The combination of a wide/narrow chainring with a 9 speed Shadow derailleur will work with your 10 speed 105 shifters. You don't need to give up on this approach.

    All that being said, I'm...

    Universal Cycles started carrying them recently, and they had the best price. They're local for me, so it was a win-win.

    It works great too. I raced on a very bumpy course last night and had no...

    I'm using the stock FSA Gossamer cranks that came with the bike. Nothing terribly fancy, but they get the job done. Right now I have a 42 up front and an 11-28 in the rear. It's a 10 speed though....

    I'm in the same boat as you, just doing it with a Shimano drivetrain. I swapped my double rings for a Race Face wide/narrow chainring because it was a) considerably cheaper than the other versions...

    I recently downsized my 2x10 to a 1x10. I'm using a Race Face wide/narrow chainring in hopes of avoiding any kind of other chain retention strategy at the front. Trying to keep it clean and simple....

    The descent on Tabor that goes around the big reservoir is really nice and it loops right back in to the steeper climb. It's the road through the gate if you're coming down from the very top.

    I don't, but one of riding friends routinely rides Tabor in the evenings. There's even a day where all car traffic is closed entirely, I just can't remember which one. I get the impression that...

    I think you might run in to issues with that crank for off-road use, in that the 144 BCD will limit your smallest chain ring size. Other then that, sounds like an awesome build. Those frames look...
