New drive train
Well, since the X-mas shopping is over with(finally), I'm lookin' at replacing the cranks/chainrings(prolly BB, too), chain, and cassette on my SuperV. The bike came with a Coda one-piece right-hand crank/chainrings so I can't replace just the chainrings. BB now is the solid, square spindle-type(<think my terminology's off a bit there) and I figured a splined spindle would be nice to have. One less thing to worry about, I guess.
I was thinking of going with LX components since I don't ride it nearly as much as my hardtail. I am pretty rough on it when I do ride it, tho. So durability is more important than weight. The current LX seems to be equivalent or pretty close to my old XTR on my hardtail. I have Sachs chains now and have been very happy with them, but I'm open to suggestions on them, too. Finally, I'm lookin' to spend US$250 or less, if possible. Any input would be appreciated. TIA.
