Gear Talk / Re: Drivetrain spare parts for a long tour

"I do not know when you plan your RTW tour but pretty much every country in Europe is code red, currently - keep in mind that if something happens your insurance will not cover you."

Do you mean the covid situation? Yes, at this moment, EU is problematic, but everithing changes quickly. I'll start from Ukraine, then Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Malasia, Indonesia -> USA -> Europe

I still haven't got visas for Iran, Pakistan and India and don't know what's going on there in term of covid.
In my reality covid doesn't exist so I don't care too much about it.

Gear Talk / Drivetrain spare parts for a long tour
« on: September 25, 2020, 07:38:31 pm »
Hello
I'm planning my "around the word" tour.
The first (and wildest) part will be about 12000 km before I get from Europe to Bangkok/Kuala Lumpur where I'll be able to buy/order quality components.

Currently I have the following drivetrain setup:

Crankset: Shimano Deore FC-T6010 (Hollowtech 2, all aluminium)
BB: Shimano XTR SM-BB93
Rear derailleur: Shimano Deore RD-M6000
Cassette: Shimano Deore CS-HG50-10
Chain: Shimano Ultegra CN-6701

As you can see, I was fooled by Shimano marketeners. Instead of using old good 3X9 Alivio, I decided to try something new.

My biggest fear is BB. Will it last for at least 12000 km or take a spare BB?
Chains. Suppose one chain lives for 2-3000 km, so I need up to 6 pieces, right? And one more cassette? I'll use paraffin as a lube
Chainrings. They're made of aluminium. I was told aluminum chainrings will die in 7-9000 km. Do I need a spare ring?

Thanks!
