Strengths:    Looks great. Light weight. easy to ajust.

Weaknesses:    Noisey. Ajustment slippage.

Bottom Line:   
Started out great! Looked awsome on bike and was not a lead pipe in the weight department. Used for about 6 months on XC bike until I had to swap it out for something else..............For some reason I would ajust my saddle angle and after 2-4 rides it would always "slip" a little bit so it was nose up slightly. Not a lot but enough that I could tell when the bike felt "different". I began keeping track of it with a level and everytime it would "slipped back to the same location. Weird. The straw that made the camel go WTF?! was that it developed an anoying creeeking/clicking noise at the top end linkage. I tried cleaning, lubing, re-torqing (always used torque wrench to specs when ajusting), all to no avail. It just drove me nuts with the noise and re-ajusting.

What is weird is I have the less expensive original Evolve post (same basic design) on another bike that has been flawless. I put a Truvativ on the bike and it's been solid with no noises.

X9 or Race Face Turbine Cranks?

Going to upgrade my Muk 2 from 3x9 to 2x10. There isn't a lot of info on X9 vs Turbine. Is there a big difference in stiffness between hollow forged and CNC'd? Does one shift better than the other? Also, thoughts on mixing these cranks with XT shifters and cassette? I prefer Shimano but obviously ... Read More »

Press-Fit Bottom Bracket for Turbine Cinch

I ordered a new RaceFace Turbine Cinch crankset for my 2015 Giant Trance today. The Trance has the Shimano Press-Fit BB, which I believe is a BB92 correct? I ordered this BB92 bottom bracket to go with the cranks, just want to make sure it's the right one. I miss my 68/73 bottom brackets :( lol [IM ... Read More »

New cranks - Race Face Ride, Turbine or Sram X5?

For 170mm rear hub - Salsa Bucksaw build. Going 1x10 with 30T front chain ring, 11-36 out back. I like the Ride as it is $100 and only 30 grams heavier than the Turbine, but the Turbine comes in colors. Sram is what is spec'd by Salsa on the BS2. I will probably swap them out for some RF Next cr ... Read More »
