I'd like to lower the gearing on my CX bike since I don't have anything lower than 36/25 and there are definitely some hills that I've been avoiding; especially where my parents live just south of the Poconos.
I found this crank on velo-orange
and was wandering if it would work on my 2010 Scattante X-330 CX bike
. Since the bike link is unreliable some of the bike specs are as follows:
BOTTOM BRACKET: Isis Pro
BRAKES: Tektro Oryx Alloy cantilever
CASSETTE: Shimano Tiagra, 9-SPEED, cogs: 12-13-14-15-17-19-21-23-25T
CHAIN: KMC HG73, 1/2"x11/128",116L
CRANKSET: FSA Vero Cyclocross 46/36t
FORK: Carbon legs, CroMo steerer 1 1/8"
FRAME: XRL Aluminum, double water bottle mounts, and replaceable derailleur hanger
FRONT DERAILLEUR: Shimano Sora
HEADSET: FSA Integrated, alloy 1 1/8" with top cap
LEVERS: Shimano Sora, alloy short reach levers
REAR DERAILLEUR: Shimano Sora, 9-speed
SHIFTERS: Shimano Sora, 9-speed
WHEELSET: Rims: Alex R-500, 32-hole, Hubs: Formula double sealed QR
Also, although I plan on getting better at the wrenching, I plan on having someone else do this for me. If there is anyone reliable in the Philly or Trenton areas that anyone knows of I'd appreciate it.
Thanks in advance
