I have done that mode on the bike that my friend rides & he is very happy with it.wesmeyer11 said:I realize this should be in the drivetrain section but I didn't get many responses over there.
I just bought a Giant Anthem 29er X3 which has a crappy crank. The rear and front derailleurs are SLX and the cassette is a 10 speed Shimano Cassette.
Question: Can I swap out the crank and BB for the X9 crank without changing anything except the high/low adjustment on the front derailleur and be okay? I want to go 2x10 but the trails I ride on are pretty brutal on cranks and I don't want to trash an XTR crank. The X9 crank seems to be a really good value.
