I purchased this to replace a wornout crankset on my 09 RH. It has lasted 300 miles, but I have had some issues.

I have upgraded to a Chris King bottom bracket as many reviews have put the GXP bb at the bottom of the list. I should have gone with a DH crank maybe?

Just order a 22/36/bash sram x9 2x10 and I knew the 22t would be too small for my needs so I order the oem (truvativ) 24t equivilant to replace it with. Crank just came in and I noticed it said (printed on the big ring) ''use with 22-v3 only". Does this mean it would actually shift worse with a ch ... Read More »
