Chain Ring Combination

Well I bought a almost new Suginio AT on ebay, it was set for 6 /7 speed - then I bought a almost new set of raceface 9 speed 110 bolt pattern rings 48,36,26 then last week at a club meeting I got a new set of really beefy 9 speed raceface rings 46, 34, 24 - today I built them up 48,34,24 - I have not mounted them yet because I need a tapered bottom bracket - I am running 9 speed durace bar ends - what does every think of the combination - running a long cage xt and a 12/32 in the rear? Mw

ps the bike current has Ultegra triple not enough bottom end

It's a great combo for touring and will work just fine. I run 48/39/24 by 11-32 with an Ultegra front derailleur and XT rear.

It sounds like an excellent combination! It's fairly similar to my set up: XT 12-34 cassette with 24-36-48 crank.
