Mud sucks and that's all I can say about that. The nice thing about running 1x9 is the clean up is just about as fast as my single, just replace housing and cable for 1 shifter and done. To be sure I made the right decision I grabbed my chain and broke it apart by hand, yup correct decision. To my friends over at SRAM the new chain is of course a SRAM chain so I don't expect any more bent links for another 15 years.
The Jersey Devil HT, couldn't have asked for a better set up, but I can't wait to race it in dry conditions.
Got travel, I toyed around with the foolish idea of running the JD HT with a Whit Bros carbon Rock Solid. I saw guys who did it, but I'm glad I didn't.
Carried 2 litters of H20 a spare tube and hand pump in the pack and never felt it. I am always amazed how the weight disappears in this thing. Love it. Running the Enduros on the Jersey Devil HT this year and the GP 1 with bar ends on the Single, I think I have finally found the right combo of grips to bikes.
