    Haro Extreme x6 help

    Hi, I have a 2006 Haro Extreme x6. My crankset and rear cassette are pretty much useless. The teeth are so worn down that the chain slips a ton. So just a couple questions. I need to buy a new rear cassette which I think is the right name for this:



    or maybe its called cogset. I dont know.

    The other thing I need is the front crankset sprockets. I really dont know what these are called, my cranks are fine, just the two sprockets that the chain spins around need replacing. BikePedia says this is my crankset: "Truvativ Ruktion, 24/36 teeth"

    this is what I have on my bike, but I dont want to buy that whole thing, just the two sprockets. If anyone can tell me what these are called and where to find them it be a great help.

    Hope this wasnt too long and that you guys understand what I'm asking.

    Thanks

    EDIT: I finally figured out they are called chainrings. Now how do I know which ones will fit on my bike?

    Heron, you should probably seek the help of your local dealer on this. The Ruktion does have replaceable chainrings and rear cassettes are readily available, but you could run into compatibility issues if you don't know what you are looking for.

    Gotz ta agree with downhilljill the LBS would be your best bet because you may need other components or their is a different problem your not aware of. Generally if the cassette/cogset plus chain rings are worn the chain is shot also. Depending on the age you may also need cable and housing replaced also. These are a couple web site that have great info on bike repair, never hurts to learn some since you may need the knowledge on the trail sometime to repair a flat or something.
