    Any thoughts on these! I was looking at the RS7 sq taper with Phil BB.

    I am using that crank but not the chainrings. So far I am very happy with them.

    How have you got them set up? Clearance issues? What chainline? Would appreciate your advice or hints with set up.

    I got Carbon-Ti 38/26 chainrings setup. Clearance with HuskurDu on 80mm rims is about 8mm.Bud/Lou should clear too I think.

    Those are middleburn 39/26 rings coated. I don't have bfl to try. With the Floyd's I had 5mm and with the Nates about 4mm. That's on a 9:zero:7 135mm offset frame.

    Anyone know if this crank will fit just fine with the extra small 907 170mm 1 1/8" frame? I probably wouldn't use tires fatter than the Nate. I also have a fat (100mm) Chris King bottom bracket already. Thanks!

    Yes they should work fine. I have them on a medium 170mm frame now with nates.


    Order them from Alex at MTBTandems.com Home Page you probably have to call him at (678) 445-0711. He is great! They are in GA in the states.

    I have purchased my crankset from him. Very fast shipping and I'm a pleased customer.

    Yeah, I always deal with him. He's cool.

    Which spider did you go with? I'm thinking 3 chainring, 4-bolt.

    I got the duo (2 chainring). Works well. If you need more chain line clean ace I wonder if you could use the triple and only use the 2 outer ones.

    Currently running a set of triple ring Middleburns, 9 speed sram, Hope external BB, on my 18" pugsley, nate on the rear.

    Working fine for me so far.
