    What tools will I need (is this easy?)

    Wanting to chang out the crankset and the cassette on my new remedy 7 so that I can sell the parts as new. Want to upgrade to the slx crankset and cassette. First of all are these parts considered top of the line or no? What is involved with this and what tools will I need as I have never built or done major repairs on a bike?

    For the cassette removal you'll need

    -lock ring romoval tool
    -adjustable wrench
    -chain whip

    for removing the cranks (assuming they're newer two piece cranks/bb) you'll need a set of allen wrenches and maybe a special Shimano tool for removing the outer non drive side bolt (only if your cranks are Shimano, of course)
