So I finally narrowed down my new bike and purchased an entry level Bronson Carbon with the intentions of gradually building it in to exactly what I want. A few immediate upgrades will be wider bars, 50mm stem, dropper post, and a new drivetrain. I am considering 1x11 or 2x10 and would like your guys input on these upgrades if you would be so kind. I am not entirely new I just have been out of this Love for almost 10 years doing other things. Thank You as I want to do it right and spend my money in the right place first.
