A rep has confirmed these two 'cinch' components work together. 

Putting this out there, as I've been looking into a lightweight crank option with lower-end 2x (104/64 bcd) rings, that has a road (narrow) q-factor.

i.e. Will be using no more than a 43t large ring, and either a 26t or 27t small.

Easton's smallest 'gravel' 2x ring options are too large for what I'm chasing. 

The cassette will be a 11-28 or 12-27 (5-6 one-tooth cog-jumps in the middle which I prefer).


Now just have to sell some components/wheels to fund it 😉

Will you use a road or MTB front derailleur for your 27/43 combo?

It sure does. Think this was a 28/38 combo and an 11-27 or 28 cassette.

Funny you mention that as I have read about people using road derailleurs to save some weight. If I did go down that route I'd have to make sure a certain component would work with my top-pull setup e.g. Carbon-ti make a small adaptor that converts a down-pull road derailleur into a top-pull. 

If I did go mtb, I'm considering a braze-on Sram XX with a carbon clamp. 

At the moment am looking at 42/26. 


Thanks for the pic also, SpeedyChix. I think I've come across you bike pics before but at the time wasn't considering this kind of setup. Good to know.
