Strengths:    Not sure...

Weaknesses:    Chainrings, chainrings, chainrings...

Bottom Line:   
I've had no problems with the strength of the crankset itself, but the chainrings. They may as well make them out of plastic. I had to replace the big and middle WITHIN one month of riding. If I would have known they were going to be a problem I would have went with the Race Face crankset to begin with, instead of having to purchase the RF rings (which are awesome, by the way). I've been riding for over 20 years, and my old XTR crankset lasted for a long, long time, without replacing anything. When I decide to replace this crankset, XT, XTR, or Race Face. But never a Bontrager again.

140 mm too much for 650b xc race bike?

I was looking at getting a khs sixfifty 6500 to race xc but I think 140mm is too much for a xc race bike but I would be going down some gnarly descents but there would also some big climbs. I am having a hard time deciding on what to get I would prefer to get a 650b though. :confused:Read More »

Race Face Cranks ?

Looking to change out my crankset. I ride singlespeed and really don't see the point of buying a double or triple, removing the ring(s) and than try to sell them. Makes more sense to me to buy a dedicated SS crankset, unless someone can convince me otherwise. Anyway, I'm looking at Race Face Turb ... Read More »
