Current stuff ? new mountain bike drivetrains are as in .. #2
you can get a low gear rear cluster 34t, and a small gear for the crank a 24 on a 74mm bcd is as small as you can go..
I like friction bar end shifters , keep the cog number down to 6 or 7 speed at the most , and it will be fine
with a 14 t cog on the back and a 50t on the front it was high enough , but really only use that in a stiff tailwind
downhill, enjoy the ride coasting down, stop and enjoy the view on the way down.
