crank question and my Rockhopper (pic)
Hello. I've been browsing for a little while, but this is my first post.
I was looking at getting a new crankset because I bent a few teeth on the outer chainring of my Specialized Rockhopper. I want to get a bashguard. I only have an 8 speed drivetrain and the cranksets I keep seeing say they are for 9 speed systems. Will they work with my setup? Specifically, I am looking at the Race Face Evolve DH or the Truvativ Hussefelt. I have seen the add-on bashguards as well, but unless this is my only option.. I would rather change out the crank & bb.
Here's my 05 Specialized Rockhopper. I picked it up about three weeks ago, and I love it! I've only done a few things to it so far, but here's a picture anyway.
