Great quality cranks. BB threads a bit poor

Posted23 December 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Looks great
No issues with the cranks at all.
Exactly what I expected with XT.
The included bottom bracket threads however weren't great, and it looked poorly made. The bearings and seals however appear fine.

Ideal gear range for me

Posted06 June 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
I bought this chainset to put on a frameset I've been building up into a multi-purpose bike. It is mainly for commuting and some leisure riding on towpaths and trails. I live in a hilly area and worked out that this chainset, combined with a 32-11 cassette, gives me an excellent gear range. I've previously had a triple chainset, but realised I had only ever used the highest gear combinations twice in 5 years! So this chainset gives me what I need, and is lighter than a triple. Installation was easy. The only slight negative is that the external bearing system seems very flimsy to me - I'll have to see how well it stands up to regular usage.
