Evening All,

I need some help here.

I am trying to sort out my 'old' Hardrock (completely standard 7/3 speed) make it good and keep it in our holiday home etc.

I am going to change:
- cassette plu chain to this : ... prod127734

- chainset to Shimano Deore M590: ... lsrc=aw.ds

- front shifter is knackered so new one, like for like, is on its way (sram x3);

1) Would the above work together and is the chainset complete with BB and ready to put on straight from the box ?
2) I am also thinking (maybe not necessary) of upgrading brakes from mech to hydro - what make / model should I look for (can be second hand no more than 60-70quid a set)
3) if I upgrade brakes do I need to change the rotors as well ??

Many thanks
