Specifically a duck egg one. Couple of things.
We want to do a bit of light touring with panniers, maybe the Devon Coast to Coast and similar things. Will a mtb groupset be a silly idea, or not? I am planning on using my rigid genesis io with Alfine 8. We will certainly not be trying to bash out 70 mile days. We have a 9 speed xt/xtr transmission on a hard tail we are going to retire. Also have some cx disk wheels and some brakes so would just need finishing kit. if a mtb group is a bad idea, can I just get 105 triple and mtb shifters in 10sp?
What size? She is 5ft 8" I reckon a medium.
