Old STX-RC 7 speed upgrade compatibility
#1
Hi Folks, I hope someone on here will be able to give me a steer.
I'm trying to upgrade my wifes old Marin Bear Valley SE (1995) but I'm really struggling to work out what Shimano replacement parts I need.
The current spec is:-
https://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/BikeSpecs.aspx?item=32407
Crankset Shimano STX-RC, 22/32/42 teeth - ideally I'll replace the chainrings
Cassette Shimano 7-speed, 11 - 28 teeth (I think this would be Shimano-CS-HG41-7-Speed-Acera-Cassette???)
and a compatible chain (I think this would be Shimano-CN-HG40-6-7-8-Speed-116-link-Chain-with-Connecting-Link???)

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

here is a list of what I would use. Finding chainrings would be a tough one, I am also not a fan of low end shimano chains
