I haven’t tried a 1x setup yet and worry that I wouldn’t have the lungs or legs for it with our short, punchy New England climbs, but I recently bought a new bike (Fezzari Alta Peak) that has the 2×10 gearing.  going from my old 3×9, I have to say that I love the 2×10 – it just feels like it is geared right for our New England single track trails.  The low gearing gets my fat butt up the climbs without having to spin my guts out like the old 3×9.  Love my 2×10.
