What if road gears is on a MTB bike frame and 2.1inch MTB wheels?

Iím very keen to get much larger custom chainring as a road chainring for my 29er bike,
such as 53T or even 58T, 60T.

(Iíd be most happy to put 3x10 60-42-26T or 58T-40T-26T or alternatively 53T-38T-26T or alike, and/or 3x9, 3x11, 3x12)

but I learned that I just canít put those on MTB gear system.

(I also learned that Shimano offers 48T MTB chainring, but I couldnít content with it.)

so the idea popped up later was just putting road systems on a MTB frame and my 2.1 inch wheels.

( I didnít get a frame yet because I couldnít determine one with what kind of BB specification I should get among B30 or BSA for most common Shimano stuffs in my country, South Korea.)

so concerning pedaling force regarding bigger and heavier wheels,
usage in rough terrain and hills as for riding a usual MTB,
and comparibility with a frame and other components such as m

Iím enquiring what downside and problems I might have to face or risk.

Thank you deeply in advance for this unusual, odd idea.
