Yes, but I have an entire year to figure everything out. I am eyeing 46/39 but it would be really nice to try it out before I set it all up.

I'm still undecided if I want to build my own wheelset, or buy a pre-made one. But I did get a chance to borrow a set, so hopefully I can throw it together soon!
