I would greatly appreciate some experts help me poke holes in my current plan and tighten it up before I plunk down my ducats.
I have been finding some encouraging information on my searches, but I want to post up specific plans and get some feedback. This hardtail is currently setup SS, and I would like more range.
I am planning on running a 1 x 6 (or x 4 or 5) drivetrain with the following components:
Stuff I already have (so ideally could be used):
Frame BB spacing is 68mm; its an evil D.O.C.
Sram AKA crankset
Hope Singlespeed specific Pro 2 EVO rear hub (primary driver of project...i like this wheel)
Sram x9 9 speed long cage rear der
28t spiderless chainring from HBC (purchased not recieved, yes I know it will be a while)
32t and 34t chainrings
Stuff I intend to buy for this project (I'm fine changing this list to make the system work better):
Sram x0 9 speed shifter (standard trigger)
DMR Viral 28t - 38t chainguide with BB mount (will be used going fast over techy terrain)
Sram pg 970 9 speed cassettes (was planning on buying 2 then assembling appropriate cogs for given chainring)
