    Crankset/Cassette Upgrade

    Hey everybody, I posted in the Beginners forum that I'd like to upgrade some of the components on my bike in the next month or 2, as I'm going to be going on the Michigander 300-mile ride this July. Thanks to the posts there, I've decided to start with the crankset, BB, cassette and chain.

    I'd appreciate some opinions on new components for the drivetrain. I've got a Klein Attitude Comp that currently wears a Bontrager Race crankset (getting a touch chewed up), an XT 9-speed cassette that's going on 6 years old, and I'm not even sure about the BB. I've got a set of XTR front and rear derailuers which I'm happy with, but I also might up grade my shifters.

    Anyway, my budget's gonna be about 500-600 give or take a hundred (i'm sure it'll be give). If anyone can give me any suggestions on components that will do well and fit into this price range, I'd really appreciate the help.

    Thanks a ton,

    Everything you asked for 180 bones

    Look around for drivetrain combos, you will do a lot better in terms of money than buying each piece seperately. Below is just one such example, nothing super bling but it will all work well.
