    New question here. Whats the best Mtn bike Crankset?? Under 200.00

    I have a Cannondale Carbon Moto with 73 english threads.. I was looking to replace a GXP1 crankset because I feel it doesnt look so good.

    I was online and seen lots of cranks MSRP for about 300 and websites clearancing them for around 120~150 each..

    I was considering..

    Race Face Dues ~145
    Race Face Respond ~165
    FSA Vdrive ~95
    FSA Gravity ~110
    FSA Afterburner ~90
    Shimano XT for about 250.00 ouch!!!

    Just looking for the best crank over all for the least amount of money. But Im replacing a GXP1 (Stylo 3.3) Sram Trutativ 170mm ... So I wouldnt want to lose quality..

    You can get the single ring saints off crc. They on sale. I tried rf atlus, and tru Hussenfelt. They all great cranks. Depends on what YOU want

    I'd go with the Deus, IMO... maybe its because I have one . Great crank, and you can't beat the made in Canada tag either!

    If you shop around, you may be able to find a Shimano XT crankset for right at or under $200. This is the best one you can get for this amount of money. Even if it's a little over $200, it's still a smart buy. Here's some links:

    I had a RaceFace Deus once and liked it but it did not shift as smoothly as the Shimano does.

    Shimano SLX, hands down. Stiffer than XT, cheaper but a bit heavier.

    How would a SLX compare to my GXP1 ?? I thought about replacing my 44t for a 36t raceface bash.. Then the 32 ring for a 36T ring.. what you all think about that??

    ^^^ This. I recently put some on my bike and love them. Inexpensive, too...
