I am about to build up my new Moots Smoothie and was considering a new crankset. I have avoided the whole ISIS thing up to now. I am a huge fan of Phil Wood!! I have been running RF Turbines with Action Tec and Bone Ti chainrings. As I look about it appears that it is all but impossible (away from Ebay) to buy square taper cranks anymore!! Whats the deal with the new crop of 'integrated BB' set-ups?? I know I'm biased, but I find it hard to believe that these outboard bearring BB designs are as bullet proof as PW, who pretty much sets the standard for quality in BB. Am I going to have to bite the bullet and try this design?? What have people found? Thanx in advance!

I have no personal experience with the new integrated bb set-ups, but pricepoint.com still has RaceFace square taper cranks (both Next LP and Turbine LP)...
