I'm in a market for a new X type crankset which do you guys recomend up to $200 range?
Truvatuiv sylo 3.3
XT. Solid, dependable, bearings will last more than a month.
Another vote for the XT's.
I'm have a Truvativ Stylo, a Raceface Evolve, an XT and an XTR crankset on my bikes and the latter two have been problem free. The XTR is sweet with its carbon/titanium middle ring and machined arms but the XT is hard to beat in terms of its value.
And Shimano LX is just about as good as XT: lower cost, a little more weight, looks different. Great value for money.
