My bike's parts are in need of change and I wanted to do this in stages.
Currently it has shimano parts based on a triple mountian bike front crank and derailleur and six speed rear cassette and derailleur.
First part of the plan is to update the crankset to a SRAM Apex double 50/34 cranks. So will this crankset be able to use a six speed chain connected to the rear cassette.
As a side I have confirmed with SRAM directly that their road gear is 100 % compatible with their mountian bike gear so my plan is to mix and match the Apex front end with X5 rear end equipement but I can only do this in stages.
