i am looking to buy a second hand quest ( a more recent one than my 3x20 :) ) but i was looking at the price of the new nx 12 speed drivetrain that cost around 210€ for a 11-50 cassette, derailer and shifter . has anybody here any expierences with this ?

i have 2 large range 10s cassettes on hand . but the spacing between the gears is quite big on the low gears . and my quest still has the gears under the seat so i can't test them .
tnx for the link to blueliquid ,that's an interesting site .
so i guess 42 will be the max without modifications to the body .

wollte ich auch gerade schreiben, der Kettenlauf wäre sonst sehr "unoptimal"

hullo, incase you want to try to maximize wide range cassettes: Oliver Majevski does not make these anymore, as a Chinese manufacturer jumped in.

In dem Zusammenhang - ein Kettenblatt mit 42 Zähnen müsste doch den gleichen Umfang/Durchmesser haben wie ein 42er Ritzel.

Deswegen müsste es theoretisch möglich sein einfach mit einem Kettenblatt zu prüfen, was hinten reinpasst? :unsure:

There is no need for a 11-50 cassette. Don´t forget the Quest has 3 chainrings in the front even in the standard configuration you have a ratio of 1:1 enough to climb hils up to 15%

Every old mtb and racebike had a tripple in front . Half of the gears in a tripple overlap each other . there is a reason that they are going to single or double . on the flats that i ride the 11-28 57 was a bit to hard to get going .
