Unsure what chain set
#1
Hi. I have a cannondale bad boy fatty alivio 700c.

I want to upgrade the chain set cassette and chain as the one I have is rusty and worn out. I have found this on eBay but I am unsure if it will be compatible with my bike. Also I want new front and rear deraileurs but again I am unsure. Here are the links. Any help would be great. Thanks!

Joe you need to provide some information about your bicycle:
* current number of speeds.
* current derailleurs
* current shifters

The first ebay item is for 9 speed stuff; the 8 speed RD may or may not work well with 9 speed stuff. The 8 speed FD should be fine.
