So instead of dropping at least 600 and not having any fun with playing/fixing a new bike, I've decided just to try and make the best of my bike. Right now I have a 91 Schwinn World Sport. It's not too bad because its either a 50/52 cm frame, I'm only 5 6. I just haven't had any luck with finding a nicer frame to convert. So if anything, I can always put these parts on a newer/better frame.
I'm tired of messing with the old school style of bottom brackets. I'm adjusting it nearly every two weeks now. So I realized I can spend somewhere around 30 dollars to just get a cartridge style bb. Then today, I realized the current crankset is biopace and kind of just sucks. So I might as well get a more legitimate crankset.
Might as well beef up my gear ratio. I thought I was running 42/15 but only 40/15. So I'll need a new cog, and then I might as well switch over to 1/8 inch chain.
I'm wanting to spend somewhere in the area of 100 dollars.
Right now, I'm debating between IRO Build Kit 1. $135
Or going through various sources, probably just ben's cycles.
Sugino XD Crankset- $69 - http://www.benscycle.net/index.php?m...oducts_id=6660
Sugino BB - $36 - http://www.benscycle.net/index.php?m...roducts_id=656
Formula 16t cog - $10
KMC Chain - $8
Total - $122
(I could probably save like 10 dollars if I ebayed the crankset and bb)
I'd also like to get some MKS Sylvan GR 9 at some point. Ben's Cycles has them for 20. Anything better?
Which one is the better deal? Or is there something better I could be getting in the same price range?
