Have decided to try and do some commuting this year and have picked up a used Carerra Subway 8.
Commute is a fairly flat 9miles on NCN routes.
So my questions are:

Can i get more out of the gears, top end, by changing the rear sprocket ? If so does anyone have any buying advice please?

Also, the chainring has signs of wear as does the chain - again, any tips on what products to buy to replace them?

Finally... is there anywhere i might find (online) a handbook/spec for the subway8?

All help appreciated :)
