    How would I find out if there are larger rings available for the Deore M610 crank that is on the bike? Googling isn't helping. I can find Deore M610 cranks that are 48/36/26, but they are pricey. ...

    Hey, don't be sorry. I am thinking "damn stinking carbon" right now. I won't sell it as is if it is unsafe.

    Will any threadless fork for a 26 inch wheeled bike work as a replacement?
