I sold the Crux. Now I have a Trek Boone Disc 5 that is the correct size to avoid severe toe overlap (I think, have yet to ride it). Anyway, need to re-think gearing as this will be my gravel/cx bike. On the Crux I had planned to go with a 2x for Gravel then use the 1x for CX, however that was because I had everything I needed to make that work. For the Boone, I have the stock SRAM 1x set up so want to make it work for both gravel and cx with a chainring and/or cassette switch out between seasons (and chain of course). Right now the Boone has a 40T chainring with 11/32 in the rear. This setup up should be fine for CX season. What should I look at for gravel? I typically ride around 90 rpms. Our local gravel is pretty mild (35's are big enough and all my Boone can really take) but it can get very punchy in certain areas. As an example the ride profile from Gravel Worlds Privateer is below which was 6,000+ gain over 74 miles, most of which was concentrated in the middle. Any suggestions?
