Recently bought a hardtail to do so riding on. Its a F600. Great bike so far but I can't stand the crank, by far the weakest part of the bike.

Anyone got any suggestions about what makes and model I can look at. I have looked breifly at Shimano's XT Hollowtech and some RFcae stuff but would like some suggestions.

Thanks,

What's not to like? (Serious question)

If you have a real problem with the crankset, Shimano LX, in my book, is the best deal going in cranks: price, weight & stiffness, they're all there.

If it's crappy shifting you're trying to solve, pick up a new big and middle ring. Shimano gets my vote for cleanest shifting, but lots of guys aren't happy with what they consider a rapid rate of wear. Longer lasting alternatives are Race Face, Blackspire and Salsa among others.
