I’m in the market for a new crankset and I have a question about compatibility.
First off I just purchased a used 52 cm trek 1000 frame. My plan is to transfer most of the parts off of my old road bike onto the new frame.
I would like to purchase a new crank and bottom bracket for the new Trek but I need to make sure that it:
1.) Fits the Frame
2.) Is compatible with my old parts (mainly the rear derailleur and chain)
Here are the specs of the old frame.
Crankset TruVativ Touro 52-42-30 Cr-Mo chainrings
Bottom Bracket FSA Sealed Cartridge square taper 68 x 113
Front Derailleur Shimano FD-2203 31.8 down-pull
Rear Derailleur Shimano RD-2200
Shifters Shimano Sora STI
Freewheel SRAM 8-speed 12-26
Chain Shimano HG-50
Shifters Shimano Sora STI, 8 speed
Front Derailleur Shimano 2203
Rear Derailleur Shimano Tiagra
Crank Bontrager Sport 52/42/30
Cassette SRAM 850 12-26, 8 speed
I’d like to keep this as inexpensive as possible. What “entry level” crank and bottom bracket would you all recommend?
