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.

Long John, my point was really more about the need to go to such extremes. I ride an 11-36 with a triple and have never had to get off and walk. My wife rides a 11-36 with a 42 front but with a home designed pedal assist. We ride in the Idaho mountains almost every day and never have needed anything bigger in the back. Getting ready to ride from Coure D!Alane down to the sawtooth, using mostly back roads and forestry trails.
