Post Need a new drivetrain. Recommendations?
I ride AM hardtail (2011 On-One 456 Summer Season with an RS Revelation.. it's awesome). I picked up my bike to ride today and the friggin chain won't stay on! Never had that problem before, so maybe someone bashed the derailleur in the garage or something. Anyway, it's time for a new setup since I'm running an 02 SLX derailleur..

I want to do 1 x 9 and I have a brand new MRP XC seat post mount chain guide. I have an e.13 LG1 also, but it's more than I need, so I'd prefer not to use it (you might see it pop up in the For Sale section :rainbowafro: )

I need some recommendations on what I should get. A part group would be nice to save a buck or two and to ensure fit, but there aren't a lot I like.

Here's what I need:

Rear derailleur/shifter
Cranks, BB, maybe some pedals
Probably a 34T ring?
Rear wheel. I have a Big Earl up front and a dookie POS OEM in the back with blown bearings. Needs replacing.


EDIT: Forgot to mention, I'd like to get away under $400 I guess..
