Hello everyone, I've been reading this forum for quite a while now but I never got around to posting anything.
So anyway, I was thinking of stripping my unused mtb and making a hybrid out of its frame. I'm looking for a comfortable ride on flat roads without missing much of speed, but versatile enough so that when I come across a hilly area I won't be out of breath before I reach the top. There will be minimum off-road riding.
I want to check whether it is okay if I did something like this:
Cassette: XT, 11-34T
FD: Ultegra (since XT can't fit anything above 48T)
RD: Deore XT
Crank option 1: Ultegra 52-39-30
Crank option 2: XT 48-36-26, replace 48T with 52T
I'm checking on the drivetrain first since I guess the other parts shouldn't have much of a problem compared to this..?
And yes I'm going to use a drop bar.
