I actually really want some XT cranks with the octalink BB. I run a 1x9 and already have 36 and 38T chainrings. Why the heck dosent anyone sell just the cranks? Maybe I just have to get the Truvativ hussefelt/howitzer combo that comes with the 38T ring. :confused:

buy the set and then sell the rings. Plenty of people need replacement middles and grannies. can buy just arms in Japanese bike shops, but cheaper to buy as a set anyway.

because there's little market for just cranks. by bundling cranks and rings, the buyer feels they are getting a better bargain since rings cost way more than they should. when you need to buy rings, for just a few dollars more you could buy a whole new crankset with rings!

if you want to buy just cranks, talk to a local shop and order the arms as spares. they're available as spares, but nobody advertises or stocks rings only. any distributor can get them for your shop though.
