Hi, I know this thread has been done a million times, as Ive been lurking and googling the subject many times, which all lead me to this forum.
For starters I live in Panama (the country), and just a few days ago I bought a brand new Rali Rio mtb. I've really been enjoying the bike lately but today I was very upset when I found the left crank arm was loose and I had no other choice but to stop my commute.
The bike has a 3 month warranty, which from Rali, a bicycle company Ive never heard of outside of this country. (I have no idea where this company is from?)
What I fear is when I take it back to the bike shop and get said crank it repaired/replaced if it happens again. I feel I will have no choice but to buy a higher quality shimano crankset.
Heres what I have no clue on and need to know, My mtb is a size 26" what crankset size do I need? do I have to buy the entire set with chain and cassete? Or just the crankset?
I believe it's a 10 speed, I counted 7 sprockets on the rear and 3 on the front.
This is the crankset I'm looking at, would it work/ fit on my mtb? and again what length/teeth should I get? I ask cause I am literally clueless.
And I would obviously take the the crankset into the LBS and let them install it for me.
Here is a picture of my bike, a 26" Rali Rio (bought a few days ago new)
PS I am terribly sorry if I broke any rules in advance, I made this thread because I feel my situation is a bit unique in regards to the brand, and me being clueless.
