Dream bike, each and every part hand picked by me. Aim Was once to create a functionally beautiful, lightweight machine that rides like a cloud. Was once built up with Force22, I have fallen in love with 1x so converted to Force1. Gear range is comparable to so much 50/34 + 11-26 setups. Top gear, 34.2MPH @ 100RPM vs. 35.7MPH on a 50-11. But on lowest gear, gear inches 31.7 vs. 34.5 on 34-26. So you get significantly better gear range than on same old double, plus lightweight and shifts a lot more intuitively. Aesthetics are a bonus as the 1x looks way cleaner. New parts are noted.
