SRAM + Backcountry = RAD!!!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 11-36
I know the other guys make good cassettes (and great fishing poles too!?!), but I’m a SRAM guy, and always will be! The PG-1170 11-36 is the perfect pie-plate for the long steep climbs around my house, and getting it quick from Backcountry at a good price is all a middle aged man in lycra can ask for.
Amateur Tip: This 11-36 cassette paired with a Wolftooth Roadlink may not impress the mechanics at your LBS, but they will pair up just fine with pretty much any setup you’ve got to give you the mechanical advantage you need to make your local suckfest climb suck just a little bit less.
