Since I started commuting, I have decided a cyclecross bike might be a good alternative ride to my road bike. Wondering how many of the LX mountain bike components I have on a mountain bike I rarely ride that might be usable on a cross bike. The components are vintage 1999. How about it: cassette (too big?), chain rings (too small?), derailers, bottom bracket, cranks, brakes, nothing, anything besides the seat? Thanks for helping.

Try picking up Zinn's book on bike repair, it'll tell you all you need to know.
