just pulled a trigger on a 2014 Redline Conquest Team. Supposely, Team comes with canti and 1090g frame and 480g fork.
i want to build this up as a climbing bike later on and use it for touring as well, so was hoping to use XX1 or X01 type with RED22 shifter, but so far, no one at my LBS can confirm if that worked or not.
tried calling SRAM today and they wouldn't talk to me since i'm not a shop tech.
anyway.. i want to use dropbar.. can't stand flatbars and would like some suggestions on gearing setup... either 1x10 or 1x11 or 2x10 or 2x11 types.
my knees are bad shape so having granny gears would definitely help, which is why the SRAM 10/42T was so attractive to me.
as for brakes, i'll be runing canti.. and did some research and seems most ppl roll with TRP. but so many different types.. not sure which version of the canti from TRP to choose, or if there's other lightweight version which won't break the bank.
