- Road Chainset Replacement on a budget
My training/Winter bike is in need of a new chainset, chain and cassette – It’s currently on a Compact Octalink 9sp 105
In the past I’ve seen loads of deals for 9sp 105 chainsets but it looks like they’re all gone now so what to replace it with? – I don’t want to have to change the STIs etc. I want to try and replace it all for ~£100
I believe there aren’t any issues using a 10sp chainset – so 10sp Tiagra? Which model?Posted 7 years ago
Anything else Shimano compatible out there worth looking at?pearlbazMember
Don’t know if this would be any good, I have a Nexave chainset: New, never fitted, 170mm crank arms, octalink fitting. Includes self extracting bolts. SG X chainrings, 34 & 46 T, 112BCD, 4 arm. Bought in error. Mega9 compatible.
Currently £41 instead of £109
£20 posted?Posted 7 years agoDickyboySubscriber
Plenty here no?
No probs with 10sp chainset on 9 speed chainPosted 7 years ago
Plenty here no?
not really, there’s only the Tiagra 9sp that’s in stock and fits the requirement
Looks like I can get a 105 from Ribble for £78, add a chain and cassette so around £120
There used to be loads of good deals around but it seems a bit thin on the ground at the momentPosted 7 years ago
You’re right about Tiagra at that price, now ordered
Before I spend more than I need to, does anyone know if the XT BB is it compatible with these cranks?Posted 7 years ago
I have a couple of new ones sat in my workshop.crashtestmonkeyMember
i think the MTB and road BBs are supposed to be slightly different widths (MTB thicker?), but given the design of the axle with room to manouvre on the splines I would have thought it would work.
We’ve bought a Merlin tiagra for the other half’s road bike build but its still unfitted.Posted 7 years ago
