Premium drivetrain for all riding conditions
The bike’s drivetrain is undoubtedly one of the most important parts of your bicycle, helping to convert the power you put into pedalling into propelling the bike forward on the road or trail. It is also a very complex area as it contains a range of different components - cranks, cassette, chain and derailleur.
For the ultimate output, it is best to combine components of the same brands, for example, combine an SRAM chain with a drivetrain of the same brand. This is because when working with speed systems from other brands, performance may decrease.
If you are looking for a new crankset we recommend Shimano FC-TY501. This set is incredibly lightweight and offers reliable, precise DUAL SIS shifting. It is compatible with a wide range of parts including 6, 7 and 8-speed. Perfect for versatile performance, whether it be road riding, city cruising or commuting. Our best Shimano drivetrain available!
Or maybe it is time to swap out your derailleur? Then we suggest you get the SRAM RD X01 rear derailleur. This component offers the very best in chain management with its Type-3 Roller Bearing Clutch, providing you with faster shifting capabilities as well as eliminating chain slap and derailleur bounce. All this without affecting its precision and performance. It also comes with Cage Lock technology making installation easier and quicker.
The chain may seem to be a small part of your bike, but it is definitely a key component, so you need a quality chain to get the best performance out of your bike. Our best sellers are Shimano Deore 10 speed chain and SRAM PC1031 10 speed chain. These chains are made from the highest quality materials and include advanced technology, so they will last longer, require less force, offer more precise gearing and smooth shifting for many years to come.

How do you replace a drivetrain on a bike?
First, remove the chain from the crankset and rear derailleur. Then remove the rear wheel from the frame and aslo unscrew the crankset from the bike frame. After, you simply install the new crankset by screwing it onto the frame.

Shimano is double the size of SRAM and is considered the top contender for road bike components. Meanwhile, SRAM components are preferred when it comes to fitting mountain bikes.
