    building an AM rig, suggest a crank.

    As the title says; I'm looking for a ring/ring/bash set up that can be had for about $100. I've had my eye on a FSA moto-x on ebay but after reading the reviews I have shyed away. Now looking at an azonic nitro. suggest anything, new or used, give me link -- even better.

    Go on ebay and look for a truvativ hussefelt...
    truvativ makes good products that are simple and stiff

    Otherwise:
    FSA Gravity
    Shimano Saint... might be hard to find under 100$ but AWESOME
    or as perttime said SLX is a solid option.. not exactly bling but solid

    SLX seems to be what you are looking for...
    supposed as stiff as if not stiffer then XT, but for waaaay less....
    check out great video coverage of anything mtb (well almost).

    SLX.. Cheaper than snot on Chainreaction.com and tough as frozen snot.. even in the summer.. when its hot... and things usually thaw out.. BUT NOT THESE CRANKS!.. their still solid.
