    upgrade

    Ok, in a few weeks i should be receiving a lot of 105 grear that I'm going to put on my bike. The front Der. and teh shifter are goign to be swaped with the 105, i think I'll need new cables, houseing and should I get a new chain (i might upgrade that crankset too). All the parts on my bike have over 1K miles on them.

    thanks

    Measure the chain.That's how you tell if it's worn.Mileage means nothing, If you are putting on a new cassette and crankset,it's probably a good idea.Chains are cheap.Other stuff isn't.

    Before buying cables and cable housing, check to see if your new shifters come with cables & housing. When I purchased new Shimano shifters last year, they came with the needed cables and housing (packaged in the original Shimano shifter box).
