On my conversion I have some old crappy road cranks/crankarms, etc w/ a 3/32" chain. My chainline isn't perfectly straight, and there's a slight grinding noise that I'm assuming is coming from that. (I guess it could be the chain being too tight as well, but I'm pretty sure that's ok.)
So, my question is, what would be the most straightforward way to upgrade my whole drivetrain?
I don't have a ton of money, so I can't go all out on some bling bling cranks, etc...
Something like Sugino RD's (what's the diff. between RD's and XD's?)or the IRO cranks are in my range.
Are those not too bad? Decent? Ok? How do the two compare?
Or are there any other cranksets that around that price range and of better or comparable quality?
Oh, and right now I'm running 42x16, which isn't too bad, but I could probably handle something a little higher than that. Any suggestions?
