    my 'new' Raleigh SC30

    Hi, folks. I recently 'inherited' a 2000 Raleigh SC30, and I'm getting a tad carried away/obsessed by the technical mumbo-jumbo of the bike. www.epinions.com says 'Rear Cogs 7-speed freewheel, 11 - 34 teeth,' but doesn't get anymore specific than that. Worse, the pdf of the owner's manual doesn't, either. Short of getting on my hands & knees and counting the teeth on each of the inner 2-through 6 cogs, how do I determine the size/number of teeth of the inner cogs?

    Thank you.

    Get on your hands and knees and count the teeth.

    Actually,most cassettes have the teeth stamped on the side of the cogs. It usually reads 'xxT'. The markings are usually lined up so they go in a line across the gears.

    I tried the 'on my knees' approach...couldn'y get my fingers around the cogs...and I didn't see any stamping on the cogs, either.

    Apologies for the double-post above. I'd remove the first one if I could.

    Help me modify my bike

    What inexpensive mods ($50 apiece or so) would folks here do to a stock Raleigh SC30?

    Thank you.
