    Hey everybody,

    Trying to get my Specialized Enduro built up but i’m now a bit clueless with bike parts, what cranks are everybody using nowadays? last time I looked at cranks people were slating the “new” hollowtech stuff, but who knows whats changed since then,

    Any advice appreciated

    To expand on this, I am trying to build up my Enduro to be a bit of an all mountain xc machine, so hoping to be light but still durable, getting the right kinda balance between the two

    Spotted a set of Raceface Ride cranks for £90 on the Evilbay which is cheaper than CRC, but like I said, i’m now clueless

    Raceface are good… X-Type ones use the same bb system as shimano so they are interchangabubble, ride might be isis so be sure to get a good bb like skf

    I use raceface atlas and turbine cranks… cant fault them

    The last square tapers I had were FSA Power pro’s, didn’t last very long

    I use Raceface Ride XC chainrings and cranks and they’re great, they shift better than shimano LX.

    Shimano SLX crankset.

    I’ve that fitted to my Spesh SX Trail.

    If you look at the specs they are not that much heavier than the XT, but twice as strong, they also have steel pedal inserts.

    I’ve only used mine a couple of times, so can’t 100% commit myself yet, been impressed to date, good value for money.
