Hello guys,

I have this bike http://www.escapebikeshop.com/2012-cube-agree-gtc-di2.html and it has been neglected a little (chain hasn't been replaced in 2500 miles :(

So i need to replace the chain, cassette and front chainrings. I want to do this myself, so i'll need these tools:

* chain splitter,
* cassette removal tool,
* chain whip,

I will be buying these tools from a set on eBay probably or the set currently in Aldi for £20.

These are the parts I'll buy so far:

Chain: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=55029
Cassette: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=39014

I need advice on replacing the front chain rings as i can't seem to find any suitable ones on CRC (grey, 34/50) and any other tools i may need.

Thanks for your input.

Additionally if there is any reason I shouldn't get the components above, or if others are better please let me know :)
