My plan was to build a semi-light decent hard tail to race on next year for as little as possible. I got a screaming deal on a 1fg Caffeine 29er 3 frame a few months ago and am finally getting ready to build. The problem is I want to run gears. So I'm thinking about running 1x9 or 1x10 with a 34t chainring. Not a big deal, but the frame didn't come with an EBB. I already bought a der hanger. Now I'm stuck at what to do for crank/bb options.
I wanted to run a BB30 crank but am having trouble finding an EBB that supports BB30. The only one I found is the Phil Wood HL30. Anyone have experience with this and if it will suit my needs? Other suggetions?
I also plan to buy a lefty but not sure what to look for. I have read most of the lefty threads about reducing travel of a 26" lefty for the 29er. I'm fine with 80mm of travel. Just not sure the best lefty to look for. Don't want to spend more than 4 or 500 on ebay for one. Any suggestions for the lefty are appreciated as well.
