    New question here. 2007 Anthem 2 Details

    Can anyone provide the details/specs for the 2007 Anthem 2? I found generals on bikepedia, but was hoping to find out measurements of the crank, derailleurs, ect so I can get the fright replacements/upgrades.

    Thanks, but that's the information I already have. It doesn't tell me if the rear derailleurs are a long, med, ect or the cranks are 170mm or 175mm. Thats what I'm looking for.

    If it's 3x9 it'll be a long cage. Crank length is personal preference and what works for you. 90% of bikes come with 175mm crank arms. Not even new bike descriptions come with this information usually.

    Thanks. I never fully understood what the types of the same derailleur meant and where they were found.

    The length of the cage is pretty much determined by the the amount chain slack it needs to take up over a varying range of gears. 3x9? Long. 2x10? Medium or long. 1x anything? Short or medium.

    Can this bike be converted to 27.5?

    Best way to find out would be to borrow a friends 27.5 wheelset and shove it in there. If it fits, it works.
