    CODE BLUE!!! Need Immediate help: Hone or XT

    There are other threads about this, but I have to decide in the next 3 hours. Want a new crank for my Fisher hardtail. Mostly XC and trail riding. I'm 6'2, 210 with gear. Bike is black with some white graphics.

    Looking at the Hone 3-ring crank for 145 shipped new, or $172 shipped for the XT used for <10 rides (looks to be in near perfect condition). What do you guys think?

    HELP!!!!

    Buy new. Who knows if the guys is lieing, and secondly why would he be selling it after 10 rides??? Something doesnt add up. IMO XT cranks are over rated.

    Good advice. It was a seller on ebay with 300+ 100% feedback. Said he switched to 180mm from the 175mm and showed actual pics of the crank and rings.

    XTs have never done me wrong, and I am a bit heavier than you are.
    OTOH, why not buy the hone for less, new? just a tid bit heavier, just as bomb proof...
