are there any other cassette "top-ends" like these, going up to ~40t? also, how are these for longevity?
For me it seems like a worthwhile buy. The cost of the XX1/X01 cassette is off the wall. All I need is the cassette top and the Raceface Narrow Wide 30T ring up front and I'll have fairly wide range 1x10 setup.
There is another company called Trickstuff...but theirs is a whole cassette and there is no info on when it will be available.
They got all the models of Leonardi adapters, and the price is the lowest
They have one that uses steel cogs for the 11-28 and then aluminum for the 32, 36, 40. 312 grams claimed.
They have another that uses ti cogs for the 11-28 and then aluminum for the 32, 36, 40. 280 grams claimed.
While I haven't gotten any of them yet, my understanding is that they are available.
Do you have an ETA on when you'll have them in stock...if you're planning on carrying them?

I saw that on Ebay. You have to remove one of the middle cogs to use it?
Found this. Price is a lot more reasonable. Think this is the route I'm going.
A write up on it.

I guess when you get something that is not factory...there will always be some kind of compromise.

You serious? You've never seen loose cogs before? A 2 second ebay search could find one for you, along with pretty much any LBS.
IMO the OneUp seems like a very poor alternative to the General Lee. By the time you purchase a loose cog to fix up the terrible jump right in the middle of the cassette (where in theory it should be the least desirable place to have poor gaps), you're going to spend about the same amount of money and have something with worse shifting that weighs more. How can that be a good choice?
