I need some advice on how to upgrade the parts for my 2003 Gary Fisher Tassajara. I recently got this bike second hand, and can't seem to afford a new bike, so upgrading over time is my only choice for now.
I just want to know if the parts I buy are going to be compatible with bike? If not, how do I find out what part will be compatible?
So far I'm looking to buy:
- A pair of Avid BB7 Disk Brakes
- Avid Speed Dial 7 Brake Levers
- Shimano Deore Crankset (I would rather just replace the worn out gears, is this possible?)
- Front and Rear Deraileurs (Shimano XT/XTR?)
I'm still a noob with mountain biking, but it's going to be a part of the rest of my life! I love it, any help with answering these compatibility questions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
