    My question is what would you do for gearing for bicycle touring?
    3X10 or 2X10


    My Surly LHT 3x9 speed Gearing for my Bike Touring from 1st: 26-36-48t to 2nd 24-34-46t then 22-32-42t with 11-34t 9 speed cassette don't use the outer 42t chain ring for fully loaded touring in southern California and now I am going to 2x10 24-38t or 26-38t maybe 3x10 22-30-40t with 11-36t 10 speed cassette and By gong to 2x10 24-38 or 26-38 or something like 3x10 22-30-40t front Crankset means I can go to 40t or 42t 10 speed cassette

    Update on my Bike Parts list
    I have to have my Shimano XT RD-M786 SGS long 36t Shimano XT FD-M781 direct mount Problem solver DM mount clamp Wick Werks Mountain double chainrings 24-38t Shimano Deore CS-HG50 10 speed Cassette 11-36t KMC X10 10 speed Chain I just ordered my MicroShift MTN BS-M10 DynaSys bar end shifters 10 speed PNW Coast Stem and PNW Coast Handlebar I might be able to get the Raceface crankset for 3x so I can use a bash guard chainring and Raceface 26t 64mm BCD Chainring

    I could rebuild my old Shimano Deore Crankset with Shimano SLX M660/M665 10 speed Chain Rings with 24-32-42t 104/64mm BCD

    my question is what would you do for gearing for bicycle touring?
    3X10 or 2X10

    I am 54 yrs old now and I can stock up on 9 Speed Chain Rings from Raceface Turbine 22-32-42t 9/10 speed X 2 Sets
    Note I was thinking about IRD lobo adventure crankset 42-28t with 11-36t or 11-40t 2X10 with my Hope BB Set and my new Shimano XT Parts 3x10 but I would need to buy the Shimano XT FD-M786 2X10 Front Derailleur, I have Shimano RD-M781-SGS 10-Speed Long Cage Shadow Rear Derailleur silver, Shimano HG-50 11-36t 10 speed cassette, Shimano SL-M780 XT Shift Levers Set 10 Speed.
    Right now I am using the Shimano Deore Crankset with Raceface Turbine Chain Rings 22-32-42t & 11-34t Sram pg-970 9 speed cassette on my Surly LHT 26in 52cm 2008 and I am thinking IRD lobo adventure crankset 42-28t with 11-36t or 11-40t for Bike Touring near me here on the Wast Coast of USA for my Bicycle Touring/Stealth Bicycle Camping Trips. and I could go back to 24-34-46t


    Thanks Tim

    3X9/3X10 or 2X10 Crankset for Bicycle Touring?

    I am using Shimano Deore 22-32-42t crankset and I like the 22-30-40t and what do you think about 22-30-40t for Expedition bike touring? With 11-36t 10 Speed Cassette.
