I'm having issues with my crankset rings. 3 years of abuse has taken it's toll. No teeth = dumping chain. And I'd rather just get a new crankset rather than get new rings. I like RaceFace (I currently have a RF Prodigy XC ISIS crankset), but RF only has X-type now. Any thoughts? I hear the X-type BB's that come with their cranksets are shite. But I've been eyeing the Deus setup. RF shite is just so sexsay to me. But I am considering all my options, ISIS and X-type.

Here is my current setup to help you help me:

Frame: 2001 Jamis Komodo / LT Comp Series / Easton Elite / 17" / Beetle Green color (Yup it's a hardtail. I don't puss out, lol)
Fork: 2003 Manitou / Black Elite / 100/120 / Coil Spring, TPC Damping, hollow crown, RA casting / Candy Chrome color
Brakes: 2006 Avid Juicy Seven / 160mm (6") rotor / 850mm F / 1400mm R
Wheelset: 2006 Mavic Crossmax Enduros Disc UST / Front weight: 850g / Rear weight: 985g (1835g total weight)
Tires: Hutchinson Python UST (originals, not the NG lights) / 26. 0 x 2.00
Crankset: RaceFace Prodigy XC / 175mm / ISIS spline
BB: RaceFace Evolve FR / 113mm / 68/73mm / M12 bolt
Pedals: 2003 CrankBros Eggbeater SS
Chain: SRAM PC991
Shifters: Shimano XT (2007 Shimano XTR M970 on back-up)
FD: Shimano XT M750 / 1 ¼ (31.8) / Top Pull (2006 Shimano XTR M960 on back-up)
RD: Shimano XTR M960 SGS (Shimano XTR M960 SGS on back-up)
Cables: Shimano XTR
Cassette: Shimano XTR M960 / 11-32T (used Shimano XT 11-32T on back-up)
Bar: RaceFace Air Alloy / aluminum (custom cut shorter to save weight)
HS: Cane Creek S-2 / 1 1/8" threadless
Stem: RaceFace Prodigy / 1 1/8" / 120mm / 8 degree rise (face drilled out to save weight)
Grips: Yeti Hardcore / Odi lock-on clamps
Seatpost: RaceFace XY / 400mm / 26.8 (custom cut shorter to save weight)
Seatpost collar: Hershey Racing
Saddle: Selle Italia Flite Gel Ti / Black

I mostly ride at Turkey Mountain here in Tulsa: Here are some URLS for some descriptions of Turkey to help you understand my riding needs: Mountain Mountain Bike Trail

And I may be racing in the season of 08 in this series:
which consists of other trails, not just Turkey

Find a leftover Shimano XT crankset. Not the lightest but will more than likely outlast anything else you can buy.
Thanks for the idea, but no. I refuse to use Shimano for cranks or brakes

Any other ideas on ISIS or X? RF X BB's?
