chanks to chainwheels???????

so i figured i need a 29t with a 9t cog and now i am trying to find a crankset that will take a 29t 3/32 chainwheel. i dont know what i need. all i really care is that is is stong and black.

3/32 vs 1/8. i want to make sure i dont get them mixed you guy what to look at my parts so far.

where do most people shop??? i am on bikeparts.com.....sound cheap but i looks good enough for what i am doing.

first off, you need a 25t for the 9t and any cranks will work

Thats about 60 gear inches. It's not that hard to push it.

Most people run a 25/9, but the most I've heard people running with a 9t cassette is a 28. The only problem is there's probably a lot of stress on the bearings and they might wear out faster. Most 23-30 or so tooth sprockets are 1/8". I'm pretty sure 7075 aluminum is stronger than 6061, so I'd go with one of them.

The harder gear isnt really even much worse for the driver.

smaller gearing is harder on the BB bearings.

so i really dont see how the chainwheels hook to the cranks. some one explain!! please. i need a 1/8 25t on 175mm cranks. American bb. and then i am guessing 3 piece cranks take bearing just like one piece right. or even if i there is a 25t 1/8 chain wheel that fits a one piece.

o wow thats easy. but i dont know if i can even use a 3piece crank right now. i have the one piece cranks with the simple cups and bearing. its like 2 inch across the bb housing. i was looking around this site and looks like i would need alot of shizz to have a 3 piece. got a 250 dollor buget and want a new wheels and chainwheel and crank are bent to wack. thats a one peice. i hate that there are so many differnt types of parts for one thing. and that the site i am on does not have detail specs so like i have no idea is the chainwheel i am looking at is 3/32 or 1/8.

the eastern c/w would be fine because even though its made by eastern, a chainwheel is a chainwheel.

I don't think they do. Could you possibly grind your dropouts to 14mm?

No, that's a freewheel hub. One of these fit on it.

Idk why it says that there is a 10T cassette on it.
