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.

New rings.

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.
