    "new" XTR cranks - what do I have?

    I just bought a set of almost new FC-M952 XTR cranks at a swap meet. These have 5 arms, not 4 like most XTR cranks I've seen. No small chainring (but there are holes for one), and 36 and 46 tooth for the others.

    Anyone know what these are? can I use 110mm chainrings with them?
    Thanks
    Steve

    They're M952-5's, but you already know that...should be 74/110 bcd.
    Measure 'em if in doubt (110 bcd should be 64.7 mm center to center).

    How much did you pay? The 5-arm XTR's are more rare and IMO very desirable. They are pretty much my favorite cranks yet. Now go find yourself an M950 BB to go with them, not the M952 though preferably. I ran that setup for many years w/o a single issue. I really like the M950 BB since you can tune the chainline and also the drive-side BB cup has lots of threads which is great for an LRP or DRS. NIce score man!

    Thanks for the input guys

    Thanks for the information guys.
    The Tucson bike swaps held in November and March every year are awesome - I paid $50.
