    New question here. Chaparral cranks, what fits?

    What cranks are you guys running, what works, what's strong, any recommendations?

    Tried to see if my Saint cranks will fit and it doesn't look too good which as a shame as I really like them, will see when I've got the bb faced etc. There seems to be a few issues with ISIS longevity so I'd be grateful for any thoughts.

    Cheers
    David

    OK, just for those of you who might be interested;

    Managed to fit my Saint cranks, two spacers on the non-drive side, some careful filing of the crank on the inside near the clamping bolts. Just rounded the corners basically so I don't think there will be any issues with strength etc. Really was only a small amount of metal to remove. Will post some pics at some point.
