    Shimano Saint cranks vs. Hone cranks??

    Ok I am 6ft, 260 lbs. and in need of a new crankset. I was looking at the new Shimano Hone line or the beefy Saint. I do all mountain and some resort riding on my hardtail. So should i take the safest route of getting the beefy set? i do not care about weight at all so tell me what yall think, thanks!

    I was wondering the same thing, but your link didn't give any specifics regarding the Hone or Saint BB

    yeah it looked like all those cranks were hella old or lx/xt shimano cranks. it makes me definitely wnat to get the beefier set so thats why i bought the saint cranks a couple days ago. i heard that the hone were like the xt with a different paint scheme. so idk what to tell you Clyde S. Dale, but if you want i can pm a review of the saints when i have them running on my bike.

    I weigh 240lb andI was looking at the Saints aswell and ended up going for the Race FAce Atlas I got for 209.00 new which was a real good deal. I checked out alot of reviews and heard all good about the atlas just another option.

    $100 for TruVativ Hussefelt cranks and TruVativ Howitzer XR BB seem to be working just fine for my 250lbs.
