I am tearing my old Scott rigid frame apart and turning into a touring bike, to pull a yak I think.
The front rings are beat and so is the rear freewheel. I guess it's a freewheel since it is an early 90's mtb.
The rear is a 7 speed 11-28
the front rings are 24-34-42
Is this a good enough range for light touring up here in Maine? I will hit some climbs but not massive ones.
I am having a hard time on-line finding front rings that are not too expensive. It is not an expensive bike, so I have to go overboard on this part.
I guess changing the chain along with the rest is expected?
