that's quite lucky of him.
 
probably should include pedals as part of my 1st upgrade.

i dont think i would buy them at 70 bucks though.

 
thanks for your feedback on the crank.
yea no plans to change the crank at the moment.   

  
aero?

Should be either the wellgo one or the MKS pedal, these 2 are the only quick release i know of. the vert 8 stock crank is ok. the vert 6 one is terrible, which  involved in my past bad experience in the vert 6 bike

hi

just got a vert v8 and was thinking of changing to:

kinetix comp wheelset (i will be buying 74 to 100mm and 130 to 135mm adapters)
9 speed cassette
sora 9 speed derailleur
sora 9 speed flatbar shifter
9 speed chain
tektro caliper brakes (do i need the extra long version?)
 
 
  
will this work? any comments?
anybody have experience upgrading their vert v8 ?

Thanks!
