Dear Rodeo team!
Today is donkey day! Just received my TD 3.1 frame at home.
Now facing same challenge as many of us nowadays: some parts are still missing and out of stock.
I build a SRAM Force AXS mullet with a 1×12 setting. Missing parts are: Crankset (Praxis Zayante is not available).
I try to find a matching alternative and wanted to ask for your experience. What would you recommend? Or is there anything to consider?
– SRAM Force 1 DUB. More expensive due to limited T47 BB’s available. Would take a Chris King T47 30X with Dub conversion kit or a C-Bear Cyclocross BB (unsure if this is a good choice for rough terrain)
– SRAM Force 1 GXP, More BB’s available
Is there any other crankset BB combination I should consider for the mullet build?
As I would love to use Zayante I was surprised about the compatibility statement of Praxis: not using SRAM chains. Did recognize any issues with a 1×12 SRAM setup? Could use a KMC chain instead….
Many thanks for the whole service and your support!
Happy New Donkey Day!
The parts situation is QUITE tough right now.
For the Sram Force 1 Dub we recommend the White Industries T47 BB / Dub / External cups. King is also good. We haven’t heard of C-Bear.
GXP would also work.
BB30 would work but we avoid it because the spindle length is technically a bit odd and requires internal T47 cups to work on a Donkey. (Doesn’t work on Flaanimal at all).
If Praxis doesn’t like Sram chains we would recommend KMC. They make phenomenal chains!
