I'm currently in the process of relocating to Sydney from Beijing for university and as of recent I have purchased a new second hand hardtail XC Merida bike therefore meaning that I have 2 bikes, both entry level hardtails. Looking at the specs of both bikes I was wondering if a drivetrain transplant would be worth the trouble from the old bike to the new bike.
