Cresta GT: Drive train
On Saturday the derailleurs got the Sonic bath treatment and some 3-in-1 oil on the pivots, before being put back on the frame. First the Rear.
Then the front.
The crank had to be taken apart because I wanted to replace the oval chain rings with round ones and install a smaller low ring. As you can see. like the rest of the components the crank was filthy, thank goodness for the Sonic cleaner!
I also carefully documented how everything fit and did the disassembly and reassembly in the same day, lesson learned from the Passage.
And back on bike.
This morning I polished the crank arms and put on the MKS sneaker pedals.
I also ran the shifter parts and the seat post through the sonic cleaner so I could finish off the drive train.
After a wipe down and some fresh lube the shifters are back on the bike completing the drive train.
Next up: Wheels.
Ride. Smile. Repeat.
