Topic - Orange P7 in need of TLC

pepperpot - on 22 May 2012
After a 40 miler the other weekend, Iíve come to the conclusion that the P7 is in dire need of some TLC. So, the plan is to strip it, and get a new snazzy powder coat job done at some point. But the immediate jobs will be;

1) New crank bearing (wobbles like billio)
2) New crank set (2 of the three rings are worn)
3) New chain (terrible state)
4) New cassette (least said the better)
5) New pads front and back (wouldnít stop a fart)

I have no idea of whatís good or not so advice would be greatly appreciated. Donít want bargain basement because Iíll only end up breaking it. On the other hand I have a mortgage, a girlfriend with a handbag fetish, and a van to pay for so uber cash isnít an option. So what I need is a few pointers to bits that are the unsung heros of the MTB world, the kind of bits that will get the approving nods from fellow bike geeks, for being the sensible options.
