Cheapest, toughest components for a mountain bike commuter with slicks

Hi All,

Can anyone recommend some cheap strong components that can handle inclement weather? I ride a beater mountain bike to work. I'm not looking to build it up with expensive derailleurs or disk brakes, but rather throw strong cassettes, chains etc. that can handle the rain, salt, etc. Thanks!

Wait a minute this is for you company right? Why not just stick with the question in your original post? Hmm.

Forget strong, just go cheap. They all wear out and break.
