Sugarkane has given solid sage suggestions.
Haven't heard from you in a while, BmanX.
How's that English of yours? That is (can be) one hell of a climbing bike.
Your ww posts were one of the reasons why I got an English. Loving it even though it's not being used right now.
Less is more.

Thank you. I am getting back into it more. I just came out of the garage right now after converting my P2C into a true 1 X 10 build with the drilling and removal of the FD hanger. This freaked me out as it was bonded and rivets. The bonding was the hard part as I did not know how hard to pry then I said screw at and it popped off.

Installed my new 50t Fibre-Lyte spiderless ring and my new TriRig Sigma X stem (heavy as shit). I did not have it in me to re-cable the bike however.

As for the English this is now my Fondo bike for and is heavier but still under 6800g.

I really want to build a 1x10 climbing bike but as cheap as possible. Might do this with a FM-008 as they seem pretty light and with my current part I could built it up pretty light.

i wouldn't rock the extralite chain rings on an electric set up..

the reason electric groups shift well is brute force.... the extralites are made of northern Italian noodles.. you will not have good times with them.. try the carbon Ti, I've never used them but they tend to gun for usability over weight as a company ethos and if they down work well then suck it up and use the praxis rings..

May go one more size up due to the frame geometry
