OK...don't laugh at my DS MTB...I'm going to upgrade to a better ride when funds become available; but question...based on the below pic:
Do I assume correctly that if I ever have the need to replace the largest chainring that I am SOL? I'd like to keep this bike around as a "beater" in the future/and or something my wife can tool around with when she gets the motivation. I'm always in the largest cog in front and in the smallest three cogs in the rear.
If I would be SOL...what could I plan on spending to upgrade the spider/chainrings to something more "standard" (i.e. something that will take 4 or 5 bolt chainrings? I know, I know...don't tell me its not worth doing...but I'm a sentimental guy OK...)
I'm probably asking this question incorrectly...pardon the noobness.
Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, 1/2 a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses.
Jake: Hit it.
