I have a very functional Rocky Mountain Slayer 70, oh and its an '07. Its not the hottest ride out there but it works for me at the moment.(basically lacking funds to purchase something better). The issue is that my cranks are constantly coming loose, due to the crank are being bent. Or, so I'm told. I have to tighten them at least once a ride. I've decided to replace the cranks but being a newb in the world of mountain bikes I have no idea what specific components to purchase. I've decided to go with a 1x setup with a 32T ring.
So, what is available out there? I don't want to spend a fortune because i do plan on replacing the bike next spring, but i've had enough of constantly stopping to tighten my cranks.
I hope i have provided enough info to get some good advice, or failing that, some bad advice or crackpot suggestions.
If there is a critical piece of info i'm missing please let me know.
