Well, the obsession is real. I don't aim to be the fastest bike, I just want to be a mountain conquerer! My latest 11-42t cassette which will be paired with a 30/46 crank and derailleur extender. I've decided to move my 11-36t cassette to another wheel set for backup. I'll sacrifice the added weight for better hill climbing!

I finished tuning the Shimano 11-42t rear 10 speed cassette while running a 30/46t front crank. I also installed a Wolf Tooth GoatLink derailleur extender using the stock B-screw and installed flared 44cm gravel drop bars which amazingly enough allow me to run the bars fully slammed on a 90mm stem. Also as mentioned earlier, I have a Velo Speedflex saddle and a suspension seat post I harvested from my old mountain bike! At this point, I feel like this bike is it's own Franken-bike category!

I'll probably run this setup as-is for awhile. Thought I'm now thinking I should get a dedicated road bike so I can start riding in the fast group rides here in LA! :D
