I have a ~5 year old 300HT. Parts are mostly worn or have been replaced by cheapest parts available(tourney or china brand). It is mostly used for commuting bike and I have decided to upgrade some parts. Recommendations would be helpful if you think not needed or should use another part. Should I stick with xt or would lx be ok?
So far have purchased:
rear derailleur 9spd Shimano xtr (have tournet)
shimano xt 9 spd shifters\ brake handle (have cracked stock ones)
and intend to purchase:
shimano xt 9 speed cassette ( have worn 7spd sram)
shimano xt v brakes ( have $5 china ones current)
shimano xt chain( currently have $10 unknown brand one)
Chainrings show wear and not sure if I should upgrade crank to match other parts or if new rings would be good enough.
