Building up sort of a freak bike
Iro Phoenix 58cm
cane creek scr5
dia comp #610 centerpulls
some cheap velo vinyl seat which i'll switch out to some white colored leather seat with springs (any suggestions)
ritchey comp stem and seatpost
all city clips and straps
mks gr9 pedals
tubus tara front
tubus logo rear
hubub bar end shifter adaptor
velocity chukker rims (need to be built)
all city new sheriff 32 hole fornt hub
all city 612 crank 46tooth (here in lies the problem)
i can get this down to 42 tooth paired with the included 25tooth cog
maybe not ideal. There's a lot of hills around these parts though. I live in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
I'm trying to figure out what the best configuration is since i could change the sprocket to anywhere from 16-25 with either a 42 or 46 tooth chainring.
just consider this bike would be loaded and used for light touring maybe a week max.
and pardon my ignorance on this but I have never built up a bike before and am trying to learn here... Thanks
