    Help with upgrades???

    I currently ride a 1991 era Haro Extreme. I need to replace the cassette, chain, and chain rings and hubs. Its currently equipped with Shimano Deore LX components. The cassette is a 7 speed and I'm wondering if I can fit a 8/9 speed cassette on the bike. Any help is appreciated.

    Yes, you can run an 8/9 speed on the bike, but you'll need a new hub. The hub spacing is the same, so any modern MTB hub with 135mm spacing will do.

    If you go 8/9 speed, you'll need to replace the items you mentioned above plus the rear and front derailleurs.
