I know, tough decision right?
I chose 2x because I needed the high speed and tight gear spacing required for a fast group ride on the road. But if my speeds were under 30mph and I wasn't trying to hang on to a paceline (i.e. if I could pick my own speed), I think 1x would be fine. I don't shift the front rings much - generally 36t on my own, and 46t with a paceline.
