I've ridden my 2011 mountaineer for one season and this spring before bike season fires up I wanna do some upgrades. I got an idea of what I want but I have a few questions before I get my hands dirty.
I want to swap my front and rear derail to alivio and possibly the crank to alivio aswell.
The questions are: will I need to swap to an alivio cassette and swap the bb to acheive all I'm asking or will everything work keeping stock bb and cassette?
Here are the stock specs http://www.pinkbike.com/product/norco/2011-Mountaineer/
(Its says the frame is 7005 but its actually 6061 :/ )
All help and suggestions appreciated. Thanks
