just pulled my old gt out of the shed, need to sort it properly this time! (i stripped it and rebuilt 3 years ago). now i need some parts. its a 1992 karakoram in tequila sunrise paint, i need a front mech and chainset. anybody know what i need to be looking for? its got a 7 speed cassette, is there a part number for 7 speed compatible chainsets? i dont intend to do anything too strenuous on it, just want to get it rolling, i've had it since new! any advice gratefully received.

Hi, the size of front mech is 28.6mm, It should have a never ending band type but i use a normal clamp top pull,
the groupset on this is usually deore dx as is cranks,
hope this helps,
Lee.
