An inexpensive upgrade... especially for 1x drivetrains
Had this "megarange" installed from the standard freewheel, for the sake of curiosity. My bike has a 3x7 drivetrain and this supercharges the uphill capability considerably. To be honest, I don't have local hills so steep that I need it, but it's nice to be able to quickly shift to a low gear for road crossings instead of shifting down twice and back up again to accelerate away. My wife rides steeper terrain and swapped hers to this once she saw the advantage. I'd say that if you only had a single chainwheel, such as the 1x6-7 speeds in store, and had steep hills in your area, this would be a really useful and inexpensive upgrade. As always, the service at 99bikes was prompt, attentive, and recommended.
