    Chain Ring Compatibility Between Shimano Cranks

    Hey all,

    Just got a new bike a while bike so I am parting out my old bike and putting some of the parts on my wifes trek marlin.

    The crank I am putting on is an SLX crank (3 x 9). The crank that came on the Marlin is a Shimano M311. Since the marlin is a 29er, her stock crank has a smaller chainring set than is on my SLX crank (that came off of a 26" bike). Can I swap the chain ring set from her stock crank to the slx crank?

    Any tips on doing this?

    Looks to me like the M311 doesn't have removable chainrings, so that would be no-go
