    Which is the better Crankset the Raceface Evolve or Shimano LX M580 ?

    I need to get a Crankset for one of the bikes I am putting together and I've decided it will be either the Shimano LX580 or the Raceface Evolve XC. My first choice would be the Shimano LX580 because it looks better to me but as the price of the Raceface is cheaper I have been thinking that maybe I should get it instead. Anyone know which one is better quality wise and is the al round better crankset? Thanks!

    I chose the LX over the Raceface, there was on sale recently for about $125 at Nashbar plus an extra %10 discount. Still awaiting its arrival. My Truvativ 5d is garbage, it lasted a whole 3 months.

    I think the weight is about the same if that's a concern. I have 2 race face evolve xc cranksets on different bikes. They're decent but I've heard a lot of horror stories... I'm dropping the cash for the new xtr this time. I'd go with the shimano
