The frames should be in next week.
Here is the plan for the build:
Things I have or have ordered:
Trek Crockett Frame and fork
Bontrager xxx seatpost and alu stem. Ritchey Carbon Logic Bars.
Shorty Ultimate Brakes
Bontrager RXXXL Saddle
Farsports Carbon Wheels
40t Wolf Tooth Ring
Stuff I don't have:
Sram XO Derailleur Short Cage
Should I get Type 2 for the derailleur, or not?
What cassette for price/weight ratio?
- Do you have a particular budget in mind?
- Clinchers or tubulars?
- Can an X0 shortcage fit a 32? I know some people have tried but I'm unsure of any definitive results. Why not just get a medium cage (aside from some added weight)?
People on my team are running the 40t Wolf Tooth ring with road Sram or a Type 2, in either case they seem to be happy with the performance so I'm not sure how big a difference it actually makes.
Definitely running tubulars. I have farsports 20mm tubular carbon wheels (1030 grams) and some old mavic tubular rims laced to ultegra hubs with 32 holes. I ran grifos last year for the whole season, but the tread was peeling off by the end. Looking at Clement, Vittoria, Maybe FMB.
The xo clears a 36 regardless of cage length. that is why I am running it, for the cassette clearance, and higher spring tension for shifting in muddy conditions.
I know its disc but maybe some Inspiration

I definitely don't want any chain drops, so I will go with the Type 2.
