Again, the reason you went with the TRS was to increase the range without having to replace your entire drivetrain. I picked up a screaming deal in the fall on a lightly-used 2017  Trek Fuel and it’s outfitted with a 1×11 SRAM X1 setup. Coming from an entry-level 3×9 setup, the shifting is much superior  and the simplicity is far more intuitive out on the trail. I do miss the range of the 3×9 in certain situations though. It just seems a shame to ditch a great shifter and mech given that it functions superbly has has so much life left in it.

That’s why I’m considering just a mod at the cassette: save a few bucks and make use of the existing components. I’ll definitely check out setups similar to yours and see what may work given your experiences. Thanks!
