Didn't know if anyone from shops got to bike show this pass week. I'm looking at buying a 29er that 2011 model. It has the new shimano 10 speed gears. Want people opinion on the gear ratio:
27/40 crank with 12-36 cassette. Wasn't sure if it better than 9 speed for climbing or middle range for rock gardens. I'm looking at going 1X9 gear for salsa bike, but not sure if leave it with 10 speed or convert down to 1X9.
