Change crank on Surly LHT
My bike: 2011 Surly LHT - 26" wheels - 56cm
I have to be honest, I am a novice when it comes to bicycle mechanics and lingo. I am looking to switch out my stock surly lht crankset with a new crankset that gears lower. I know that the stock comes with: "Andel RSC6 , 26/36/48t" crankset. I would like to get a crankset of 44/32/22. I have a few questions:
- If I switch out the crankset with a new one would I need to get another bike fitting with the new crankset? Or is it possible to find a crankset that has the same measurements as the stock crankset? If it is not possible how do I determine which crankset will fit my bike?
- Other than the crankset what else would I need to change out?
- Any recommendations as to model?
Thanks in advance
