Thanks! As I mentioned to Lester, I was in fact looking for a 1x set up if I can manage. But if not, maybe I'll just bite the bullet and go 2x. I was almost sold on the Karate Monkey but after test riding a few bikes yesterday I realized the speed issue. I just made a separate post about it actually: Best Chainring clearance bike or frame
