    Crankset/BB Recommendations?

    For my new Independent Fabrication Deluxe, I've purchased SRAM X.0 triger shifters and rear derailleur, an SRAM 990 cassette and PC-99 hollow-pin chain. This is going to be a Shimano-free bike, so I'm looking for crankset/BB recommendations. I don't know a lot about the different cranksets out there, so I thought I'd ask this forum. If this were your bike, what non-Shimano crankset would you put on it (Race Face, FSA, Ritchey, etc.)? I'm an XC rider so I'm looking for an XC/All Mountain crankset. Any recommendations for specific brand/models, or insight would be appreciated!

    check out truevative, on SRAM's website. They have some sweet cranks, and are very reasonable. I have never used them, but have heard nothing but good.

    Raceface

    I have the Raceface Atlas crank/bb and it's awesome. Probably too freeride for you, but their Deus is the XC version and many of my friends have the Deus and love it.

    I have this on my XC rig, and it's a steal at $100.00+shipping.
