I am considering going 1x on my road bike. I was looking at a 46t chainring up front, with a 10-36 cassette out back. I would be curious if anyone has this combo on their road bike, and if so, how well it works.
I have 1x on my gravel rig, and really want this simplicity on my road bike. I will never race it, and I’m not worried about the jumps between gears that some folks are worried about. I would like a fair balance of top end speed and slight climbing ability, but I don’t have any long sustained climbs near me to worry about.
