If you can maker it happen and you want to, do it. Don't ask us ... we know as much as you know in general, and much lass than you about you and your bike and your biking.

I don't see why a derailleur which can handle 48 teeth can't do 50, but I assume you have done the research. I don't think 42x11 will be terrible (I manage to survive 48x14 on my tourer/town bike) and the more cogs, the better, in general.

Plus, the fun of wrenching on your bike (except when it is not fun.)
