I have 3 rings on my current MB so only 8 cogs out back to select from but I'll take your advice. If I can get it to work for me on 8 then 11 should be a walk in the park. I have since read a few articles on singles and one made the point that I would be forced to increase my muscle strength to work within the limited range which would be a nice side benefit.

I have used MT's for fitness for over a decade but I don't go off-road. I just like the stability they provide both from their geometry and their tire size, but it's the rigid fork that drew me to this particular bike. Who needs suspension when you have knees and hips lol.
