So it's time for a new cassette. My climbing gears are slipping bad when i torque up a hill (no shifting) i sit and spin fast but occasionally you have to crank it hard over a root or something, thats when it slips. I Keep my derailleurs tuned. Problem is, I replaced my chain about 300 miles ago. It was a brand new kmc x9. My chainrings are SLX rings and have been ridden all year without being replaced. It's 2x9 but switched to 1x9 a few months back so the granny hasnt had much use. I'm pretty broke with the hollidays and slow winter season at work (landscaping) so First and foremost i know the cassette needs replacing.
My question is, Do i really need to replace my chain with less than 300 miles?
Also, if my chainrings have no slipping problems, can they stay put for a bit before i replace them too? Ideally i would love to replace my whole drivetrain but its just not financially feasible.
