Stumbled across the forum and spent the last hour reading all the interesting conversations.
I'm in the middle of collecting parts together for a All City Macho Man which I'm building up. I'm new to doing this type of thing and it's my first custom build. I'm thinking of going 1x10 but worried about how it will feel on some of the sharper climbs so bought a Wold Tooth Wolf Tooth 42T GC Cog. I ride at around 30kph at a cadence of 90 on the the flat as a rough estimate. I was thinking I could swap the 42t chainring for something smaller as well.
I'm planning on building it up with the following parts and was looking for any feedback on compatibility or just plain bad planning. As I said, it's the first time I'm build up a bike from scratch so advice is greatly welcome. Some of the parts I already have.
