Somebody stop the madness!

Puuuuhhh leezzeee....

What we have here is SunRace’s mahoosive 11-50T eleven speed cassette. SunRace says that it’s compatible with 11sp XTR, XT and SLX and will work with SRAM X1 too. We assume that you need a large amount of B-tension screw screwing, but there’s no other mention of any other special precautions. A 50T big sprocket is of course not new. SRAM launched Eagle last year, with its 500% 10-50T 12 speed range and OneUp countered with a 50T hop-up kit for 11 speed users, but no one that we know has offered a whole 11 speed cassette with a 50T bottom end.

So whatdaya run up front? 10t? I'd run a road triple with it and a chain and a half to add maximum weight and silliness.............

At what point is it just faster to get off the bike and walk?

I haven't ridden a eagle drive train. But since I went 11spd I some times feel very lazy usuing the 42. Really can't imagine a 50

I can not imagine a 50 but will say one really steep technical stuff I am in the 42 and need it. But I run a 32 only upfront. With the 10 in the rear it is still fast but 32:42 climbs just enough for the steep loose or rough stuff.

I don't like walking in bike shoes and I still prefer to pedal than to walk even if it would be faster. I have passed a crapton of people walking their bikes up a steep hill, I have never been passed by a walker as I was climbing a hill. I don't have any of that fancy new stuff, just a steel touring bike with a triple.
