Hello fellow cyclists,
Could someone please explain to me why XPLR rear derailer is 1x only? I want to install it on my gravel bike with 43/30 double chainring upfront. What can go wrong?
----- EDIT -----
Let me give more context. I already have 2x Force AXS 10-33 casette and quite like the setup. I also have 2 pair of wheels: one for road, another for gravel.
30-33 is not enough for me to ride steep uphils, I don't think 30-36 will change the situation drastically.
XPLR seems to use the same chain and should be able to handle both 10-33 on a road wheelset as well as 10-44 on a gravel wheelset.
Looks like a perfect match to me.
It sould be able to have enough room for chain especially with with AXS sequential shifting.
