New chain is a distinct possibility, although if you forego using the 30T with the big ring it'll probably be OK. 30T might also be a problem with some short cage derailleurs.

The 3.0 is a pretty decent 'puter, as long as you don't plan to ride in rain or wet fog. Due to a design problem, moisture gets into the mount and shorts out the contacts. The astoundingly high...
