1st post. $300 budget recommendations needed
I recently purchased an old specialized fsr enduro, and it needs alot of work. I'm gonna use it for some trail riding in the low country of south carolina. It needs brakes and new drivetrain. This is my first mountain bike and I'm not very familiar with the gearing. I've looked at some cranksets online and I don't know if I need a 1x1, 2x2, or 3x3. I also dont know if I need an 8 or 9 speed cassette. I'm not going to be doing any major climbing on the bike. I would like some input on what some of my options are. Is a $300 budget realistic? Appreciate the help.
