    Zydeco frame is comparatively expensive for what it is - I'd look at something like the Planet X XLA frameset

    This is the only part that I have already bought... ;) got it new for 400 euros - I think it was a great bargain !

    The wheels are spoked 28/28. Given the greater loading on the rear, custom builds can feature more spokes where they are required.

    How about the gearing ? I mean is 1x11 good for climbs and descents ? 42 t front and 42 rear will be enough ? I was thinking of going for 50/34 front and 11-36 rear too - it seems to be more versatile, Am I right ?

    Hey, where did you get that? Best I can see is the frameset €499 at Salden.nl or £435 at the circumspect bicyclehero.com
