    Help with first rebuild? Raleigh M-400

    Hi,

    I'm dusting off and rebuilding the very first mountain bike, a 1998 Raleigh M-400. Right now it's sitting in the shed with missing teeth and a destroyed chain.

    I'm trying to figure out what chain, cassette, rear cogs, and front derailuer (sp?) I can get from pricepoint.com.

    The original specs of the bike are:

    Crankset: Shimano STX-RC 22/32/42 teeth
    Rear cogs: 8-speed, 11-30 teeth
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano BB-LP27, 110.5mm spindle
    BB Shell Width: 68mm English

    I'm looking to replace these parts with ones that I can just swap out (i.e. will fit without modification). Any assistance with selecting parts from pricepoint or any other good websites would be greatly appreciated! If I've omitted any information I apologize. This is my first foray back into mtn bike wrenching in 10 years...

    Edited to Add: I'm trying to do this under $300.00. Is this wishful thinking?

    Thanks,
    Earthdog

    Throw the Raleigh away.

    Buy a decent bike in good running order off craigslist for $200 - you should be able to get something the same age as your old bike but with full XT in good shape for $200.

    Send me my half of the $100 I just saved you.
