how big a boy are you and how tall? (if over 6', i'd go with 180's)
did the crank crack at the spline interface or?

only you can say if you need a new chainring and one w/ more teeth. if you're current chainring is worn (ie sharktooth look, broken teeth, etc) get a new one. more teeth will give you a taller gear (harder to pedal, but faster) depends on if you liked the current setup.

new chain needed if it's stretched, check the parktool.com site for info on that.

check out truvativ husselfelts and raceface downhill type of cranks, & mayb azonic steel ones (454's?)
