Funny you should say that because I've considered it many times with the desire to simplify a drivetrain and close the gaps (gear ratios). Not like any of this is terribly important, but I obssess about bikes and mechanical stuff in general. IOW's, I do like tinkering for fun. A 2x8 or 9 is about ideal for me as long as I can get low enough and high enough gears. Hard to do a corncob on an 8 or 9spd drivetrain and still do it to it in the hills. For me, anyway. I prefer a nice balance between spin and mashing...haha
