    Drive train is shot

    LBS says I need a new cassette, chain and middle chain ring. Just wondering how hard would it be for me to do it. Can I change the cassette type from 9 speed to 10 speed w/o too much trouble?

    Changing 9 to 10 menas new shifters, run anywhere from 200 - 300 bucks. Chain ring is easy to change with basic tool. Cassette needs a lockring socket (10 bucks) and a chainwhip (10 bucks). Tool runs about 10 bucks as well to replace the chain.
