On my 29" wheels MTB, I currently have a 3x7 setup in which the front 3-speed crankset is a Prowheel 42-34-24 teeth unit, which got damaged in a crash. I look forward to upgrading to the Shimano FC-TY501 crankset which has 48-38-28 teeth.
Will there be any problem in installing a higher tooth crankset? Will I be needing to do any mods to the front derailleur settings or increase chain length, etc?
